Summer Reading Challenge

At the end of every school year, each of my classes vote on the number of books they think I should try to read while on summer break.  This year the average was 66.  I am going to give this my best shot.  I will not stress over this if I don’t make it but will do my best.  This is where I will list those books as I read them.  I will try to place a link to the review of that book.
