I started this blog for my former students (now teachers) who were interested in finding out what I have been reading. The reviews that follow are designed for teachers. They include the citation of the book, the first few opening lines, a brief summary of the book, a recommendation, and information about whether or not the book is likely to be challenged.
In the summer of 2018 I began migrating this blog to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find new stuff there.
