    Wow. That’s quite a list. I keep track of all of my “To Read” books on my Shelfari account.
    I remember really loving “The Egypt Game”. I read it a long time ago as a kid (I became fascinated with Ancient Egyptian stuff because of that book). “The Graveyard Book” is also really good, but then you can’t really go wrong with a Neil Gaiman book.

      Shelfari looks interesting. It was way too easy to sign up for an account and add books from my past Amazon orders😀 Recently, though, I’ve been pickier about what books I’ll actually buy. I borrow books and read them before deciding that I want them in my collection, so I haven’t been ordering much from Amazon lately.

    I use Shelfari for my book lists too! I have my students use it too. I hope you enjoy the Hunger Games series. It’s definitely one of the “hot” series among my students.

      I’ve had a few students reading the series, too. What age/grade do you teach?
