I’ve been giving my library quite a workout the last couple of months, accounting for about 90% of my reading right now.
Library books read:
- Steal Away Home by Karolyn Smardz Frost (my review)
- After James by Michael Helm (I loved it, but it’s probably not for everyone – see BIP’s review and Angie Abdou’s review at The Winnipeg Review)
- The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan (my review)
- Mitzi Bytes by Kerry Clare (a fun read on the lighter side of things – bloggers might especially want to check this one out) Kerry Clare blogs at Pickle Me This.
- Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine (read for Doing Dewey’s NF Book Club, and loved it)
