Tano's High School Reading List

My kids are readers, no doubt about it. They come by it honestly, as I, too, would rather be lost in a book than most anything else. Having been inspired by Lee Binz over at The Home Scholar, I am working on compiling Tano's list of books read in high school (and second semester of 8th grade, actually, as I moved him into more high school level work at the start of the 2011 calendar year), sorted by year, to add to his high school transcripts when he is ready to apply to colleges. This list posted here is not intended to be, as a friend says, 'show-offy.' It is just a safe place to keep the list so I don't lose it. I will add to it by editing this post, so it will grow over time. Feel free to skip this post. It's really just for my own record keeping.

Key:
P = pleasure reading (elective)
C = class assignment reading (required)
A = audio book
