Books I've read this past year...

We've read a lot of books since last September. Usually I am the one reading, while we're driving someplace; we keep a book in the car always. Occasionally he is the one reading to me, usually at home at bedtime. And we love to check out thrift stores everywhere for more books!

I thought it would be interesting to list all finished books here, along with what we're currently reading, books we have yet to read, and ones that we still need to find (to finish a series, or we just want to read).
