After writing her book The Book Whisperer, Miller noticed that several of her students who read in her class went back to reading less the following year. Her new book Reading in the Wild is a look at why that happens and how to create “wild readers” who are committed to reading and value reading.
This book is full of helpful resources in the form of handouts and real life examples. It caused me to do some self-reflection because as a “wild reader” I do all the items listed, but hadn’t really considered that most people do not. An example of this would be always having a book with me to read (either print or electronic). There is nothing worse for me than to be stuck somewhere bored.
