2011 Books

The book name sends you to the book page at Amazon.  The link on the rating sends you to my mini review at my LiveJournal.  It also just occurred to me when I link directly to my LJ entry, the review part is un-cut.  So, there could possibly be spoilers.  I think I’ve put a *SPOILER* alert before I write anything like that, but I can’t be 100% positive.  Just so you’re forewarned.

  1. How do you ever find time to sleep?

    • Hehe, I get plenty of sleep! I read for a couple of hours before bed and for an hour or so while I’m on the treadmill usually. Them sometimes I’ll read during the day when my Little comes home and she’s reading her own stuff. Oh, and we read a her bedtime too. 🙂

  2. Fantastic!
