Number of books read: 12.
(My goal is to read a total of 104 books in 2016, so I'm about five books behind schedule.)
(Four of these I "read" via CD during my commuting time. The other two were e-audiobooks, which I borrowed from the county library and "read" on my iPod, mostly as incentive to exercise.)
On the Kindle: 5.
(I purchased three of these. I borrowed the other two from the county library.)
Books by male authors: 4.
Books by female authors: 8.
I'm the mother of three - Jelly Bean (age 26), Sugar Plum (age 21), and Sugar Bear (age 17). I work with numbers, but I love words. I also love chocolate, Diet Coke with Lime, the ocean, and BYU Women's Basketball.
I started this blog in January 2007 as a way to keep track of the books I read. Little did I know that there was a great book blogging community out there!
I enjoy an eclectic mix of genres, but young adult and historical fiction novels are among my favorites.
I post reviews here of many of the books I read. Book discussion is always welcome! I also track my participation in book challenges and other reading events here. Occasionally I post other book- or reading-related information or memes.
Unless otherwise noted, the books I review come from my personal collection or from the county library system. Complimentary copies of books I have received from authors, publishers, or publicists in exchange for an honest review are so noted.
