Tomorrow is the last day of school. 

The library is packed.

This school year was definitely a journey, but it turned out better than I could have hoped. I moved up from elementary to middle school, which turned out to be a pretty good fit for me. 

I started out by blogging about every single book I read. In the spring, I wasn't able to keep that up. But I did keep reading.

At the beginning of the year I found out that some teachers had challenged their students to read 40 books this school year. So I decided that would be my goal, too. 

I made it to 47. I would have tried for 50 but this week was brutal - one night I went to bed right after dinner!  But if you'd told me back in August that I would read that many books this year, I would have thought you were crazy! 

Without further adieu, here are the 47 books I read this school year:

  1. Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide to Not Reading by Tom Greenwald
