Books A has read as a homeschooler this year

Reviewing the "leisure" books that A has read during this academic year, I realize that he has read more books "of substance" as a homeschooler than as an "institutional school" student in the past.  It could be that he has read more books because he is now a more advanced reader, or, that because is he a homeschooler he simply has had "more time" and/or "less pressure" to read.  I do not know.  But here they are so far (in no particular order):
