For-profit higher ed evangelists, agnostics, and critics should all read Change.edu. If you are inclined to see for-profit higher ed as a positive force for innovation in post-secondary education (as I am), then you will find much to like in Rosen's argument for the place of proprietary institutions in the higher ed ecosystem.

Sakai: Free as in Freedom (Alpha) by Chuck Severance comes at a particularly interesting time in evolution of the LMS ecosystem.

The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World by Daniel Yergin 2011 was a great year for nonfiction, but no book comes close to The Quest for claiming top honors. (Although I'm hoping you will disagree in this space!).

Looking forward to reading about your favorite nonfiction books of 2011. Without exception, every book in my list was purchased from Amazon as an audiobook (through Audible) or a Kindle e-book.

MITx is very big news. For a great overview of MIT's plans, check out Audrey Watters' excellent writeup MITx: The Next Chapter for University Credentialing? The MIT student paper The Tech also has a great article. The MIT press release and accompanying FAQ also go into detail about MITx.

My big hope is that you will share. Generating this list was easy for me, as Amazon provides a list of all Audible and Kindle purchases under "Manage Your Kindle" and then view "All Items." The ability to quickly view (and share) my reading history is one of the benefits I see in buying (or borrowing) digital books. I'm not sure how to generate such a list for Nook or Kobo folks.

Totally excited to see On Being Presidential: A Guide for College and University Leader (with an IHE tie-in) available in paper and e-book. When I clicked on the ad on IHE today I was taken to this site. $40 bucks for the paper version, and $19.99 for the e-book.

I'm in the middle of reading (actually listening to) Daniel Yergin's amazing new book The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. Are any of you also reading The Quest? (It is 816 pages, or almost 30 hours in audio - and worth every second).
