  2. WOW you had quite a productive week of reading.  Any tips?  I have been slipping and just haven't been giving the time in reading as I should.  WTG!! 

  3. The only secret is that I don't have a life right now :) ... seriously, I'm
    not working, I only took one class this semester, my apartment is small and
    doesn't need a lot of cleaning, it's been too cold to go outside to enjoy
    the weather most of the time, and my Bebe Boy is in school all day! :)

  5.  These covers are amazing.  Really draws you in!!!


  6. Handmaid's Tale is a goodie. I don't know much about the other books though. I hope you enjoy your reading week.

  7.  Now you've got me all curious about The Map of Time. I'm going to go check out your review!

  8.  Taking notes of some of these great book ideas. You are so ambitious in your reading!

  9. This one doesn't release until June 28, so I won't be putting my review up
    until the first week of June, but I looked at the other reviews that have
    been posted already, and almost everyone seems to love it as much!

    Wow. That is an amazing amount of books. I'm lucky to get through one a week! And some great titles too.

    Map of Time... I'm reading it in a few weeks and I'm trying not to look at the reviews yet but I'm glad to see you loved it.

  11.   Wow, what a great week! I'm so curious about the Map of Time, the cover is just striking. I've also heard a lot of good about Chime, I need to check it out!


Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
