As you can see, I went on a Harry Potter streak again. I finished the first one in Spanish, realized I really wanted to read the whole series again, and also realized I wanted to finish it in English so it wouldn't take, I don't know, five years? :)  Love those books. Still.

Other particularly notable reads are bolded (I'd bold the Potter books, but I'm already telling you here that they're good, plus, you probably already know that. ;) ).

Peace of Christ to you,

Jessica Snell
