  1. Rachelle your list is great! Filled with so many books I have yet to read. I have had The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and Wonder on my list for quite sometime now and still have yet to read them. My goal is to read them during winter break.


  2. I especially like your last list about the authors. I think it’s great to explore different authors because then you can explore a wide range of books. Which new author is your favorite?


  3. I really enjoyed reading your post. Your lists are great! You have read a lot of great books this semester. What book was your favorite? What class are you planning to teach? I hope you have a great rest of your semester.
