I think I’ve actually done a not-terrible job on reading books I actually own, and a particularly good job of reading more in genres that are not romance. I’ve also managed to hold off on buying too many more books; the one exception, as you might be able to tell, is Discworld. And I don’t really count that because I buy them as much for my roommates as for me; all three of us are kind of in love with the series.

What books have you read lately? Anything worth adding to the TBR list?

  1. Your progress is impressive! I really need to get back to reading in general…. I miss it.

      *hugs* Reading is very fun. What are some of the books you’re looking forward to?

      • I’m looking forward (still) to the one you suggested to me, If On A Winter’s Night. I also really want to finish the Night Angel trilogy, and get my hands on Pieces by Michelle Davidson Argyle. (Among others… of course!)
