Read, read, read!

June 2, 2010

I thought it would be fun to keep a list of what I'm reading or have read recently.   I keep seeing 52 week book challenges.  A book a week?  Cake!  Let's see how I do taking the challenge informally.   I wonder if I could read 52 in half a year?  Not exactly cake but surely a challenge.
