Eighteen climactic endings! What a week! I tried to find a clever collective noun for climactic endings, but I had no success. Bliss works for me.

Are you finishing any books this week? What are you looking forward to reading next?

(My friend, Jacqueline suggested I label the books that are not on the AO7 list, so I've done that. The books without brackets are from the regular AO7 Booklist.)



  1. Hi Jeanne,

    Can I include this in this week's Carnival of Homeschooling?

    Thanks, M.S.

  2. I'm not finishing any books this week. In fact, I just started a whole stack of books last week from Year 7. I'm enjoying the ones I'm reading immensely!

  3. Yes, if you like, Mama S.

  4. I loved The Daughter of Time book. I don't think I am finishing any this week.

  5. Are these all read a louds? That's a ton of books to be ending! What a week!

  6. No, they weren't all read alouds. I'd have no voice left!

  7. Love seeing Harry Potter on the list!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
