  1. Sounds good!! I have my list set up too...we have a few that are the same. I'm reading Boy in the Striped Pajamas's good. Not really what I expected though. It'd be a great older elementary/younger middle school book.

    I didn't know that diana gabaldon was hispanic!!! Awesome! I can finally read Voyager!
