Books, books, books

I'm a member of several Yahoo! reading groups. I don't always read the books the groups have selected each month - in fact, I usually don't - but that's what started my keeping track of what books I do finish each month. When I began this blog, back in July, I only had the lists back to April, but last night I went back through the group archives and found the lists I had posted since last summer. So here's the list of books I read earlier. (Not necessarily in order; in the beginning I wasn't as meticulous at logging each book as I finished it, so the lists were made at the end of the month as I thought back on what I'd read.)

Mar 06

Another slow month, during which I didn't finish any books. People who knew me back in high school would be utterly shocked that such a thing could happen even once, let alone twice in less than half a year.

* This book was a reread.
