I am intrigued with the #SixtyBooks notion (“60 in ’16” so to speak), though I know that is well beyond me. While few who know my work and teaching would think even half that possible given my commitments, I really welcome the idea–or creative challenge–to read and write more. Better to spend my time thinking new thoughts and wanting to discuss them with others, than to only think without this engagement.
I have been tossing around this idea in various forms for some time now, and find a number of influences–Twitter Journal Club, #CLmooc (we make learning!), Shut Up And Read!, That new habit, and even #365Papers–all of which revolve around sharing some of the really great reading we do with others, specifically the academic, research-oriented reading we (I?) frequently do in silence.
