    Elizabeth Kostova (currently reading)(Finished!)
    It appears this summer will involve a lot of vampires! Here's what Amazon.com has to say about The Historian:
    If your pulse flutters at the thought of castle ruins and descents into crypts by moonlight, you will savor every creepy page of Elizabeth Kostova's long but beautifully structured thriller The Historian. The story opens in Amsterdam in 1972, when a teenage girl discovers a medieval book and a cache of yellowed letters in her diplomat father's library. The pages of the book are empty except for a woodcut of a dragon. The letters are addressed to: "My dear and unfortunate successor." When the girl confronts her father, he reluctantly confesses an unsettling story: his involvement, twenty years earlier, in a search for his graduate school mentor, who disappeared from his office only moments after confiding to Paul his certainty that Dracula--Vlad the Impaler, an inventively cruel ruler of Wallachia in the mid-15th century--was still alive. The story turns out to concern our narrator directly because Paul's collaborator in the search was a fellow student named Helen Rossi (the unacknowledged daughter of his mentor) and our narrator's long-dead mother, about whom she knows almost nothing. And then her father, leaving just a note, disappears also.

    I still haven't decided whichBrain Rules by Dr. John Medina
    I've joined an online book club that is exclusively for those in education. Our first book is called Brain Rules by Dr. John Medina. In the book, Dr. Medina provides twelve principles for how the brain works and how we can best use these principles to our advantage. According to Amazon.com, in this book you will discover how:
    - Every brain is wired differently
    - Exercise improves cognition
    - We are designed to never stop learning and exploring
    - Memories are volatile
    - Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn
    - Vision trumps all
    of my education books I'll read first. I may give myself a week or two before I delve back into school stuff!the other senses
    - Stress changes the way we learn
