      Every month I post a brief review of each of the books I have read during the month. January’s can be found here. I have the next book, The Girl Who Played With Fire in my bag to start reading on the plane tomorrow as I head to the National Writing Project’s Rural Sites Conference in Little Rock.

    Loved this, I’m glad to know that I am not alone in keeping a list of all the books I’ve read. I see a couple I need to look up and read. I’m actually reading the Harry Potter series, late to the game, but I have to read other things while reading these since I have already figured out the ending. I guess I need to watch the movies now.

    • Nancy McKeand says:

      You know, I have to admit that I have only read the last couple Harry Potter books. I have watched most of the movies but wasn’t interested in that kind of book when the series first came out. Now I think I need to follow your example and read all of them.

  2. Brandie Lagarde says:

    So many people told me they were super fantastic. I have to keep reminding myself that they are for children, but they are good. In the third book, there is a huge error, almost all of chapter nine was replaced by a previous chapter, so i was a little thrown and left scratching my head. I will not moan or complain again over the three small errors in my book! lol
    I have abandoned it for the next couple of days for a new Koonts book!
    Happy Reading!

    This is awesome. I actually have a whole list of books that I intend to read, I was looking for other lists of books that people have read. Alot of these arent on my list, so thanks because I will be using your reviews to decide if I will read some of them. 🙂

    • Nancy McKeand says:

      I’m glad you have found my list useful! I am not sure that they are all great books that everyone should read, but that’s for you to decide, I guess!

    i haven’t really thought about ever keeping a list of books, but it sounds like you really know what your doing! You must really like reading!!! they all sounds like great books, and i especially love how the Writing Guides are slipped in there. 🙂
