(Four of these I "read" via CD during my commuting time. The other three were e-audiobooks: I borrowed Identical from the county library and "read" on my iPod as incentive to exercise; I borrowed Off the Page from the library via One Click Digital and listened to much of it in the mornings while getting ready for the day; and The Master Magician was my first "read" via Audible, purchased to complement the Kindle book.)
On the Kindle: 10.
(I purchased seven of these, including Off the Page and The Master Magician, to which I also listened to e-audiobook versions. I borrowed the other three from the county library.)
Number of books read as part of a book launch team: 1.
(I hadn't heard of Alexandra Kuykendall when her new release Loving My Actual Life came onto my radar screen - but it was perfect for this year when my One Little Word is YES and I am so glad I was able to be part of the launch team.)
Books by male authors: 8.
Books by female authors: 15.
I'm the mother of three - Jelly Bean (age 27), 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.
