Koala has read her 60 Books!!

Koala has finished her bookworm! As I shared previously she had to read 60, it sounds like alot, but well, she is a speed reader and an incredibly voracious reader so it seemed fairly comparable to the boys’ target. Due to my rules, she has only just completed her target, truth be told in this time period she has most likely read 180 books but Trixie Belden and Enid Blyton don’t cut the ice with me.

I thought it may be of interest to share her list here for those readers whom like me are constantly on the look out for book lists. The list is rather eclectic reflecting the type of reader Koala is. I have included all the books she read just prior to her bookworm period, so these are books read since August.

    Sam enjoys any book. He has read the Lord of the Rings several times, the Harry Potter series and a lot of Frank Paretti’s books. When he goes to the library he tends to go for science fiction novels mainly.

    Thank you Erin for this wonderful list. I have been looking for things for J and he has actually read quite a few of these and enjoyed many so I am printing this list out to have it handy.
    I have been trawling through all of your high school posts and you are such a wonderful asset to all home schoolers <3 I am going to catch up soon for a really good talk.
