Let’s Do the #holdshelf Again

Truth be told, I’ve never watched all of Rockey Horror Picture Show (to which the title of this post references). I tried when I was 16 or so and just couldn’t do it. Maybe I need to try again.

Back on topic! The monthly roundup of most-requested books, #holdshelf, is back on track after a couple months of “oops, I forgot” and “but it’s the holidays, man”.

I’ll be posting a picture of my school’s holdshelf on Thursday, January 31, and I’d love to see what you’ve got as well. Snap a picture of your shelf, tweet it with @100scopenotes in the message or email it to me at scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com.

Check out the last #holdshelf post (at Watch. Connect. Read.) to see how it works.

Which books are your students lining up to read?
