Reading Log // Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome & The Middle Ages

This is a list of books that I plan to use in the 2013-2014 school year. This list is subject to change as I work on planning curriculum for the year, and additional materials will be added as they are used.

The State of New Hampshire requires homeschooling families to keep a log of reading materials used during the school year (per NH RSA 193-A:6). I’ve broken the list down by subjects (as listed in NH RSA 193-A:4). I thought it might be useful to other families so I am making my log available online. This page will be updated periodically as we progress through the year.
