Ok, my first post back isn’t going to be all that exciting but it’s the easiest. I used to post what books we’d finished reading in school each month on my homeschool blog eons ago and then on my main blog when it was too hard time-wise to maintain seperate blogs. I also occasionally posted about books I finished during my personal reading time and liked/recommended. So, here’s a list of books we read last year. I always keep track on a piece of paper in my home management binder whether I’m blogging or not. These are not all of the books for school. Just the read-alouds we all enjoyed together. The olders and middles had ones they finished on their own and it’s usually too much for me to keep up with. πŸ˜‰ The list of books for me are all the ones I read during my personal reading. Also, since the list is so long and would be graphic overload, I’ve only text linked my list. Hope you find something interesting if you are looking for a new “read”!
