Books I have read!

So, I finally reached my last big personal goal of reading 300 books during PC service.  So here is a list of all of them.  Also, on some of them are a few thoughts I had about the book.  I may fill in more of those as time goes on, but here is what I have for now.  This is a collection of fiction, non-fiction, scholarly work, short story collections, and kids books I read to see if I could use them for my English Club.

Books I have read during Peace Corps service (first 150 not in order they were read)
