Good for you! I wish I had more time to read. My project this summer has been "high school reading." To Kill a Mockingbird, Night, The Scarlet Letter, etc. I didn't really appreciate them when I was younger, I don't think. Do you belong to It's a great way to get book recs from friends, and give them as well.

Wow!! Congratulations! That is an amazing list and I'm definitely going to have to save it for future library runs!

I think keeping track of my reading may be one of my New Year's Resolutions this year!

I second Jenni with the idea of I'd love to follow you on there and read your reviews!

I am sure you're like me and can't wait until K is old enought to start reading more in-depth books to her -- I am so excited for when Bo is old enough for the Laura Ingalls Wilder series, Harry Potter, etc.

Way to go! I know if I actually picked up a book other than a kids book, I could read that much too.
Unfortunately, I never pick up ooks because I always find other things I need to do - i miss reading.... adult books!
