Last year I did a regular feature on The Book Chook, where I looked at popular posts from previous months and years. Today I'm re-visiting the most popular posts at The Book Chook from July, August and September of 2014. Don't forget you can use the right sidebar to find earlier posts, too. Click Creating, Learning, Reviews, Reading, Writing and Celebrating to explore those themes, or try the Blog Archive to browse by months. The Free PDFs button takes you to my website where you can download any of the free educational PDFs I’ve created.
