Books I've Been Reading

A list of books I've read. Take a look and see if you find any of these interesting.

Goto My Booklist to see the current updated list of books read.

Go visit World Of Reading. They have book reviews by kids.

The focus of this list what books I am reading. Please remember that many of these books are unsuitable for children and immature adults.

An interesting site for school library/childrens-oriented reviews is Frederick Muller's Book Reviews. His reviews are directed towards book selection by librarians.

Take a look at John's Book Pages for a comprehensive list with comments on what John is reading.

I got a couple of leads on books to read from Lost Books too.
