Advent Calendar 2011 Week 2: H-N

This week for the Advent Calendar, you will start seeing gaps in the books.  Like I said, this is our first year, so I’m not expecting to have everything.  On those days, we will probably read one of the books that we have already read, or we will stretch a book out to cover two days instead of just one. If you have any book recommendations for theses days, please share! 🙂
