I am still Homeschool Atheist Momma!
Atheist parenting secular, doubting god, secular homeschool

A few weeks ago I asked you for your favorite books and THANK YOU for those new titles! It is not too late to add your favorites either on that post or on this one!
I promised that I would post my favorites. Well, Lucky You, today is the day.
I have been far too busy to read lately, what with life and all, but reading is one of those touchstone things for me. I always get back to it.
Here are the titles that you have been waiting for!
Drum roll please...
