I'm looking forward to our book discussion of NEVER ENOUGH: When Achievement Culture Becomes Toxic-and What We Can Do About It, by Jennifer Breheny Wallace! I'm several chapters in and have already made a bunch of notes.
Here's how we'll do this: On the morning of the 29th, I'll post some initial thoughts and reflections about the book here on Facebook. Everyone who wants to take part in the discussion can post their own thoughts in the responses, and we'll carry on discussing each reaction in the comments after each response. That will allow everyone to take part on their own schedule (we have a lot of different time zones represented here, not to mention different commitments and work hours!). I'll hope for plenty of participation from all of you, and I'll post my own reactions and responses over the course of the day.
I'm not PROMISING, but I might be able to put together a live discussion at 4 PM Eastern U.S. time using the Facebook conferencing tools. I've never done it before, so I'll have to experiment over the next few days to make sure that it will work. If it does, we'll use that time to sum up what's been posted and add to it. Stay tuned and I'll update you on my success or lack thereof! ... See MoreSee Less

16 holds on 3 copies at my library. I doubt I will get it before the discussion here is finished, but I look forward to following along.
I would love to participate, but I am already reading a book for professional development. I'll just follow along here, and put Never Enough in my queue.
