Book Lists | Reading Lists for High School
These book lists are separated by subject, boy/girl or for a specific topic. A printable book list will be available as soon as I can get it put together, hopefully within a week or two. It will be in the form of a checklist so that you can track the books you own/need/want, their cost and much more! If you need specific Reading curriculum, see My Reading & Literature Page for that list.
Before I get to the book links, here are some great tips for reading and finding books.
