Currently this boring little blog is just a place for me to list the books I've read both personally and the chapter books I've read with my 5 year old. I am hoping, in the not-too-distant future, to start writing reviews and recommendations as well. I always love suggestions on fun books to read, so if you've read something that isn't on my list, leave me a comment!
