Comment: Thank you, it was interesting to read about your month!
Comment: 5 books is a great number. Keep reading!
Comment: Hi Bre ! Wow, You certainly have some very interesting reads! Thanks so much for sharing what you've read. I will be getting the book "Munmun "by Jesse Andrews. I read something like that story a month or so ago, called "Shade's Children" by Garth Nix. It was really good! The book "ADHD & Us", I had many books about ADHD when 2 of my sons were little. They are adults now and they both have learned over the years to control it. But I guess I'm the source of their ADHD. Because I have a mild case of ADHD. But back then, they didn't know what ADHD was in the mid 1960's. my mother called me her monster child then. She didn't know what to do with me. Anyway, Thanks again, I really enjoyed looking at you list of books you've read.
Response: Glad you liked the list. I just added Shade's Children to my to-read list.
Comment: thank you so much and have a great day 3/1
