Our Past Book Lists

UPDATE 07/06/2010:

I have found that this list is laborious to maintain. We go through books so quickly that it seems impossible to keep up the list. So I am trying to decide on a better way to do this – maybe I will convert my Excel spreadsheet list from my Simply Charlotte Mason Planner to something which I can post here. Not sure what that will be, but I will come up with something! 🙂

Books Dragon Rider has read this year on his own:

These are the books the Dragon has read for his free reading time, usually at bedtime. While he is not quite the voracious reader that his twin brother is, he has been doing quite well this year. He also tends to go back and look through books that he has already read and not re-read them in their entirely, so I can’t always list what he has actually been reading. For instance, last week he had a stack of I Wonder Why books next to his bed and was just perusing through them reading the parts that captured his interest.
