  1. I read exactly 100 books for the last two years, and sadly, I don't think I'm going to make it this year! I'm only to 60 at this point. Oh, well.

  2. Maybe you'll have a fabulous fall and be able to get those last 40!

  3. Wanted to welcome you to this fun reading challenge. Love your list of books...I have got to start The 39 Clues series!

  4. Thanks, J. Kaye. I like the quick feel of the 39 Clues. I think kids must LOVE them!

  5. I really enjoyed The Mysterious Benedict Society. I recently got this book last Saturday (Jan. 16, 2010) and now I am very close to finishing and it has been less than a week! I could not put this book down! I didn't even know what the book was about when I bought it, and now I know plenty. This book is great for many ages, but has more advanced vocabulary. This book is amazing!

    1. So glad you liked the book. Hopefully you can read the sequels too!


Love it when you comment!
