I'm going to post more about the "mission" stuff soon, but for now I'll stay focussed on books.
I just saw the 1491 book at the library and thought it looksed quite fascinating as well. AND I have on my list The Federalist Papers. So those look great for me!
As for 1st - I'll read either Kim or Crusoe. LesMis seems a bit much for me right now . . . that might be great for a long summer read or something?? Still very much want to read it however. :-)
It's fun to have more activity on this group again!
