Lists about Books

Today starts a new meme over at the Young Ladies Christian Fellowship. Check out their blog to see lots of book-related posts this month. I participated a couple of weeks ago in their Snapshots of Favorite Books.

This week they have a new link-up for Lists about Books. I'm joining up and my post is below...

March of Books 2011 at

For my entry, I have 3 different types of things I'd like to share.

#1. Online Book Lists
These lists are great, especially if you're looking for books that belong in a particular grade-level, or for family reading.

1000 Good Books List (This huge, grade-by-grade book list was compiled by a group of homeschooling mothers.)

More than Books (On this page you’ll find wonderful Christian book lists for all ages: the little ones, 8 years & older, 12 years & older, and high school.)

Glencoe Literature Study Guides (Great study guides that go with several popular books.)

Sonlight Recommended Books (Select a grade/age level, and then read through the "Individual Items" for book titles.)

#2. Book Blogs
Some of my favorite blogs pertain to the subject of books--not surprisingly. Below are a few of them. I'm sure these girls would love it if you stopped by their blogs!

Just a Trifle

Castles, Quills, and Cameras

Blogful of Books

Christ is Write

Before My Penn Has Gleaned

My Camera and I

Literary Pursuits

Novel Pretender

Ashen Skye Life

Rose's Daring Adventure

The Book Blog

The Ladies Library

Whisperings of the Pen

The Parchment Girl

#3. Download Free E-books
Searching for e-books is a great method to access old classics. I've found that if you can't find the e-book you're looking for on a website, it's good to check around on other sites.

Open Library

Read Print

Planet eBook


The Online Books Page

Classic Authors

The Literature Network


Free Kindle E-books


Children's Literature Project

Many Books

Project Gutenberg

    Maybe you'll want to get a twitter button to your site. Just bookmarked this blog, but I must make this manually. Just my 2 cents.
