Thanks to Mary at Bookhounds and Kathy at I Am a Reader for hosting this blog hop.  So as a librarian, my job isn’t to censor what my students read.  Yes I purchase things that I think are appropriate for my students, but other than that, they are allowed to check out anything that we […]

Once again I downloaded the audio book from the library to go on with this story. And I really enjoyed a lot about this next part in the series.  It was filled with so many different periods in history, which was a lot of fun.  We didn’t get to see all of the characters that […]
