Books Read 2009

Wow! What a year! We read and listened to 573 books this year. Here is an index of each of the monthly lists. An asterisk means it was on our “Treasured Books” list of titles kids kept coming back to.

There are a number of books that didn’t have reviews at the time we posted the monthly list. We have gone back and added those here.  If you’ve read a book, please click through to add your ideas to the review (via Mr. Linky). Use these links to jump to each of the category sections.
