Most Boring Post Ever

"Really?" you ask. "How on earth could you possibly single one out among all the duds you've written?"

Because THIS post is a list of what's on Sean and Allie's summer reading log for the library. Doesn't get less exciting than this. I just wanted to note, for them and for me and for posterity, what we read this summer before I turn in the logs tomorrow. I do apologize that you, my stalwart readers, are also subject to my penchant for obscure record-keeping.

To make this somewhat worth someone's while, I've set an asterisk next to the titles that we (or, in the case of The Cut-Up books, just the kids) particularly enjoyed.
