Book List: TBR pile 2013

I have these separated into categories, but some of them cross over into other categories. This is not a comprehensive list, nor a rigid one. This is a loose outline; just a suggested reading list. I may change the read-alouds and the biographies depending on what we’re covering in school and as I start planning for next year. That’s also why there aren’t as many titles later in the year. I fill them in and change things around as needed. My Goodreads account widget will be the most accurate tell of what I’m reading and when.

This is definitely more than one-third of the books I read last year. I may not get to all these. If I do, great! Go me.
