2013 - 2014 40 Book Challenge

I read an awesome book last year by Donalyn Miller called The Book Whisperer.  She is a sixth-grade teacher in Texas whose classes consistently score the highest on their State test, the TAKS.  She believes her students' success is related to their love of reading.  She challenges her students each year to read at least 40 books during the course of the school year. She also keeps track of the books she has read.  I thought it was a wonderful idea, so I set out to read 40 novel-length books during the school year.  I only made it to 35, and got so busy I didn't list them all - and of course a student wants one, and I can't remember them all!  Here goes for this year's challenge!
