I had a really great reading month, which was due, in part, to the read-a-thon.  I had so much fun and I will definitely be participating again!

For an update on the challenges I’ve completed/joined, etc, check here.

 

Because of the vast number of books I have coming in from all different avenues, I’ve come up with a new method of choosing books.

Review copy–Library–Owned–Bookswim

I will rotate equally between the four categories.  Currently, I am reading a library book, so once that is completed, I will move on to one of my own books.

Speaking of books from the library, I am currently reading The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley.  I am about a hundred pages in and would love to finish it today, but I have some other stuff to do, so I can’t devote the entire day to reading, which I would love!  I have found myself giggling numerous times over the eleven year-old protaganist, Flavia–what a little spitfire she is!

How was everyone elses week/month?

  3. My reading month was good but kind of the average for me – I think I read 8 books. And, I can’t wait to hear what you think of Sweetness… That cover alone makes me want to read that book! 🙂

  4. Can’t wait for your review on the Hunger games I think that The Hunger Games was an awesome book
