Books I want to read

Here's are some books I want to take a look at:

1. Historical thinking and other unnatural acts : charting the future of teaching the past / Samuel S Wineburg/ Philadelphia : Temple University Press, 2001

The History Department at Gustavus Adolphus College is using this text for their History Seminar (there's an article on this in the Gustavus Quarterly (not available online, unfortunately). Read more about the book at the publisher's site. I want to read this in connection with my work with History Day visits to Wilson Library. I'll let you know what I think after I get my hands on it!

2. Kitchen
by Banana Yoshimoto
Author Yoshimoto, Banana, 1964-
Title Kitchen / Banan Yoshimoto ; translated from the Japanese by Megan Backus.
Edition 1st English language ed.
Published New York : Grove Press, 1993.
Description 152 p. ; 19 cm.
Other Title Kitchin. English

This one looks like a great one to read over Christmas break, and it also looks like the kind of book I'd love to be able to write. How can I say that when I haven't read it? Well, I sneaked a peek at the first few pages using Amazon's fabulous "Search Inside This Book" feature.

What are YOU thinking about reading soon?
