January 2007

Writers are readers too!  Just for fun I’ve put together a list of books I read in 2006.  This isn’t the complete listI can’t remember all the sci-fi and mystery novels I read on vacation!  I filled a large grocery bag with paperbacks from the library and at the end of our three-week vacation I’d finished them all, but because I was on vacation, I don’t remember any of them. Now that’s what I call relaxing!

Here are the truly great books I read last year. (Note: If I put the letter C after a book title, it means please check with your mom or dad before you read it, if you’re a kid, that is!)
