What to Read This Season

Books, What to Read This Season

Books really are amazing. They can be informative for projects and can also be an escape from reality when you need it. They can lead you deep into a world of dragons and goblins, or can take you back in history to the Civil War. This article will display the top books for this season, some book suggestions from me as the author, and some suggestions from our librarian, Ms. Hermes.
