3 Months of our Current Homeschool Year to Go and Our list of Books Still to Enjoy, or not....

I guess this post is more for myself than anything else - to help me see what I can put aside to be enjoyed as a random reader later - I do work better with a list.
Sometimes life gets a bit crunchy and it's helpful to see the books we have left to read in our learning year. Then it's time to ditch, switch, and re-sort.

The *really want to read* titles will get read, and enjoyed, along with Bobs readers and Daisy's picture books (she loves them!) plus her readers.
