I've posted a handful of books on teaching and I was surprised when they didn't get requested.  I realize now, that although they may be nice and inspirational I don't have a ton of time to read about what I'm already doing.  Even if the books could help me, I just don't have the time to sit down and read all the material.  I also realized that when I finally feel caught up in grading or planning the last thing I want to do is read about "exciting new" classroom management strategies etc... 

I guess I've learned that we are all too busy being teachers to spend time reading about teaching.  Keep working hard in the schools.  You make a difference!
