2006 Booklist

I dropped off the public reading map in June. I think my mid-west to west excursion did it to me, followed by receiving the reading list for my one fall class. Then there was the fall class combined with moving. If I didn’t homeschool the girls and take an occasional seminary class, I’m not sure what I’d be doing right now in the reading world. Oh yes, maybe some grown-up fiction, or even good product reviews, I find myself reading reviews of tactical watches and being satisfied. My guess is I need to go on another excursion.  Oh well. Still, I loved many of the books I read to the girls this year and I’m counting them because I did read them after all.
