Sarah's Notes
About this time last year, I came upon a beautiful book in our public library. It captured me with its cover, drew me in with the concept, and immediately made me feel like I was among friends. My Ideal Bookshelf surveys all kinds of authors, asking them: What books would make up your ideal bookshelf?

As I read what others put on their lists, I was immediately inspired to envision my own ideal bookshelf. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Some books come to mind right away, but as you start to think more deeply, you might remember books that had a nuanced effect on you, or map to a certain time in your life. After thinking about my personal ideal bookshelf I turned to building a professional one, and then one for new teachers. I hope my lists inspire you to create your own lists. Check it out, pass it along, and start curating!
