Library Loot - February 4, 2009
Only one book picked up this week (thank goodness). I have several others waiting for me now that I'll be getting soon, but at least I only added one more book to my stacks. One of these days I'll take a picture so you can marvel over the ridiculousness of it. So, what did I get this week?
Candyfloss by Jacqueline Wilson - this title has been on my list for awhile, and I needed another teen/kids book to read, so I decided to get it now.
And that really is all that I have for this week. Now that I've started school I have less time to read books that are not textbooks, which is a big part of why I haven't been finishing books at my usual rate. The other part of it is Le Morte D'Arthur. Has anyone else ever tried reading this thing? It's taking me ages. But I am more than halfway through, and I will persevere!!!
Update!! I am now blogging at my new website Work From Home Star! I have two blogs there - one for book reviews, and one about being at work-at-home mom. Check them out!! This blog is an effort to keep track of all the reading I do, and it gives me a place to practice reviewing books. I read a few books a week, usually, so it is difficult to look back and remember books sometimes. And I hope that my reviews may be helpful to anyone else who reads them. I would also love to discuss books through my posts. So if you have a comment, please leave it and we can discuss!! My favorite thing to read is fantasy, so there tends to be a lot of that on here, but I do read quite a bit of general fiction and non-fiction as well. I also enjoy reading teen and children's fiction. I have officially announced the reason I have had difficulty posting recently - I am pregnant!! So I will not be focusing on challenges, and I am behind on my reviews. But I still will try to post, and I may get caught up one day.
