I have not completely abandoned this blog. I will continue to maintain it in the sense that I created it--that is, to clarify the order to read certain series of books.
I had included some other categories on here (such as a complete list of Dick Francis' books). I am not making an effort to expand it in that area.
What I HAVE done is to create a new blog entitled, "The List Maker's Obsession", where I have included a list of books I particularly like, a big section where I have read a lot of young people's books and made notes as to age-appropriateness and other things. There's a rather heavy emphasis on books for 8-9 year old kids (especially boys right now, but there are many girl books as well) and the list will expand as our grandchildren grow.
