Just finished Oathbringer—the 3rd book in The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson, which has renewed my faith in fiction.
About to start The Good Neighbor—a biography of Fred Rogers (the recent documentary is outstanding if you haven’t seen it, btw)
Yes it is-- I bawled like a little girl.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Yes, I am FINALLY reading them.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
I was wondering how long it would take to read through the series in a year. The answer is two chapters a day. It looks like, at your rate, you will finish by the end of February.
Perhaps.

I just finished The Guns of the South by Harry Turtledove, and started The Sixth Seal by Clifford W. Kelly. I hope it's a s good as the book I just finished, always a good idea to go from revisionist history to theology.
