100 Books-A-Month Challenge

I had this typed up in the beginning of the month as just a book list but during the month we signed up for 100 books-a-month challenge. I have recorded most of the books we've read. I know I've missed some (believe it or not... LOL) and I indicated when I remembered that we read a book more than once. Or if it is a book we finished or started I put how many chapters were during this month. I think I read that I'm suppose to count each time read as a book and each chapter. On here I just numbered the books but you can find the totals at the bottom. As I read more (since it isn't the end of the month yet) I'll add them to the bottom of the list, which is set up alphabetical. The books that we read from here on won't be in order.

I have decided I'd keep track of the Children's books we read each month. This is something I've never done before. I figured this would be a good time to start to keep track. Why not do it here?! I will try and update it daily. This list is from the month of November. I'm sure we are missing some. This list also excludes any books read to the kids from Story Time at the Library. It also doesn't include any of the reading done from our history, art or language books.  Some reference books we only read interesting parts and leave the rest or we may have started the book this month but it isn't finished. If any reference books are interesting I may add them to the end but we may not have read the whole book. If I put it in this colour it means we don't own it and it's worthy of our wishlist. If we read it more than once or if I could specify chapters read I put it in this colour.
