In spite of the fact that I did not teach this spring, my reading list has not grown. Perhaps it was those four dissertations I edited. Hmmm. Regardless, here it is...

As you can see I'm all caught up on my Harry Potter. The last book is supposed to be out July 7, 2007. A whole year to go.
Also, the list does not reflect the HUGE number of Magic Treehouse books I've read with Garrett this year. We also read the whole Mr. Putter and Tabby series.
