Trying to save fun things to my blog from FB

I had tried to move some things from my FB to here and due to irritation with my children who decided for the 4th day in a row that they were not going to work, as I was yelling I accidentally lost all that I had copied. Now I need to recreate as best I can, so that I can have them when I want them.

What I have read in 2014

Please do not judge the list as simplistic or the books are too easy for me (as an adult with a degree in Literature). I read everything my children read and I keep a list of those books as well, because I need to know what they are reading and be able to ask them questions to make sure they understand what they are reading and if they write a paper on it, I need to know that what they wrote is correct.

So far in 2014 I have read 31 books (but that number is going to change soon) and I am only trying to make sure I read the things that I wanted for this years self challenge (i.e. the alphabet challenge, the books for each state and books should have read in high school and most probably have read).
A - At Knit's End
B- Ben and Me with another daughter.
B - Bones are Forever
C - Crocheted Prayer Shawl
D - Don Quixote daughter read for school
E - Easy Knitted Socks
F - Flash and Bones
H - Henry Huggins another book for reading for school.
J - The Journey Through Time

M - Middle School: How I Survived Bullies, Broccoli, and Snake Hill daughter for fun read
