Since my last WOYN post, I have finished 11 more books, bringing my total for the year to 71.
A couple of interesting things have happened this month on the reading front. Although I had been using Shelfari to keep track of my books, I decided to give Goodreads a try and am completely hooked. It’s the Facebook for readers, and I love it!!
Another thing that happened was my running across an intriguing young adult book by chance and being captivated enough to give it a read. It was an amazing book, and so I have decided to see what else I am missing and read through the Newbery Medal award winners. I checked out the 2010 and 2011 books today.
