100 books-a-month challenge ~ december

This month we didn't quite make it to 100 books read, 81 at the final count, but I am still very happy with all the books that Andre and Adrienne read themselves. I read quite a few holiday books and we finished a great little novel by Cornelia Funke "When Santa Fell to Earth".

This past week we started our new chapter book read aloud, but I didn't add it to this list yet since we are not finished. We are only a few chapters in in "The Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan. We have had the first three books sitting on our shelves for months now, but since Andre and I saw the movie preview, we decided it was time to start reading the books, before the movie comes out!
