Do books whisper to you?

This blog will serve as my Research Journal for SLIS J705 - Introduction to Research in Library and Information Science.  In the interest of space, and in keeping with the library field's love of acronyms and abbreviations, I will refer to the course as 705.  Dr. Solomon has asked us to develop a research proposal.  My initial thought is to focus on the impact of restricting students' reading choices on their reading skills and future reading for pleasure.  I will freely admit that I am influenced by Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer.  Miller's Book Whisperer blog can be found at the Education Week website.
