Books I Read (Finished) in 2008

I stopped writing reviews pretty early, and I don’t know if I’ll remember everything, but this is what I can think of now. In the order I pulled them off the shelves– not necessarily the order in which I read them.

At least some are re-reads: (R), and I refrained from listing the (probably numerable, but only with too much work) children’s picture books I read.

  • A Mom Just Like You
  • Homeschooling: Take a Deep Breath— You Can Do This!
  • Home by Choice
  • Fire-Hunter (R)
  • Coraline (Gaiman)
  • Sport (Fitzhugh) (R)
  • Perilous Gard (Pope) (R)
  • On Writing (Stephen King)
  • Stein on Writing (Sol Stein)
  • Becoming a Writer (Brande)
  • The Bridge (Massi) (R)
  • Swan Sister (ed. Datlow/Windling)
  • The Princess and the Hound (Harrison)
  • East (Pattou)
  • A Well-Timed Enchantment (Velde)
  • Russian Tales of Fabulous Beasts and Marvels (Wyndham)
  • Cinderellis and the Glass Hill (Levine)
  • Dream or Destiny (Ammann)
  • The Book of Dragons (Hague)
  • The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe (R) to the kids
  • The Horse and His Boy (R) to the kids
    • I started a number of other chapter books, and while the kids will sit and listen, they never really got into any of these.  I’ve mostly stopped attempts for now, realizing I could run out of good reads too early if I start them too young.  There are too many *excellent* picture books (requiring more of their readers) to urge them quickly into chapter books.

I was going to do a short series on reading, but ended up making a 2009 Books page instead.  With my decision to stop buying (which I hope to better on this year than last) I descided to try my first reading challenge and am looking at my un-read collection with anticipation.

  1. Hi, Amy — I see you found the Read Your Own Books (RYOB) challenge, after all, so I won’t repost the link for it. :)

    But if you want to Email me about challenges and why I join them, and all that, I’d be very happy to give you my thoughts! (I don’t want to post another post about that on my blog, though, as others have heard me go on and on about that too much, I think! LOL). ;)
