Books We Read – September

Reading Tub logoSeptember 2009 [Books received: 40 ; books read: 50]

School is back in session, so the kids have started visiting the library again. It is always interesting to me to see what the kids pick when Mom and Dad aren’t around. We’re listing those books with a KP so you can see the books they select themselves. What books is your student bringing home from the school library?

If you’ve written a review (website or blog) for any of the books with links, please click through and add your name/URL on the review page via Mr. Linky. We like letting our visitors know what other readers think! If you have reviewed a book that doesn’t have a link, be sure to leave your link in the comments!
