In times past, I used to post our homeschool books finished each month and let the sidebar show what I was personally reading and finishing. Now, since I rarely blog, the sidebar does not accurately record what is in my reading pile let alone what I’ve finished and the days are such a blur of activity that I consider myself doing good to remember to make an a note in a word processing program of what we have read for school.

I do keep track that way now though of all books finished by me alone or what I’ve read aloud to everyone and that’s what I’ll post here at the end of the year from now on (unless life changes in some other way and posting more often becomes easier again).

Without further ado:
