The Notebook Whisperer?

This past week I've become reacquainted with an old friend: The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller. For those of you who haven't read it, I highly recommend it! And for those of you who have, you know just what I'm talking about.

Truly inspirational, this book transformed my reading philosophy and teaching practices years ago. With years of experience now under my belt, reading it again has not only revitalized my reading spirit but pushed me to think more deeply about how these same strategies might also apply to our writers.
