Books Read In The Past Week

Books read for the first time are marked with  a #

Books, (except Sunday books) are grouped by author, and not necessarily in the order read.


Sunday books

Weekday Books

"Class-ified Information:  Yaffa"
"Class-ified Information: Baila"
by M.C.  Millman
[children's/young teen fiction, Jewish, series]
These books are companion volumes, each covering
the same time period (a year in 8th grade) from the
first-person viewpoint of a different girl in the class,
and can be read in any order.  Certain incidents which
take center stage in some books may get just a brief mention, or none at all, in others.
Also, each girl's home life is different, of course.
