Books & reading...

Well, there is one benefit to my job: I get to do a lot of reading.

Granted some of it falls under the category of easy readers, but when they're as cute as The April Rabbits, or as charming as My Mama had a Dancing Heart, how can I leave them off my list?

I can't, and thus I have bypassed my goal of 50 books this year. Well, I guess it wasn't a goal, because I honestly thought I read more than that, and was just curious as to how much I *do* read in a year...

Anyway, as of today, I am more than half way through my 51st book, Hoot, which unfortunately is not at home, but I am reading while in various classrooms. Lucky me that so many classes have it! LOL!

At home I am only a few pages into Crescent because I've just been so tired when I get home this week; I've fallen asleep for a nap nearly every day! (Although, I am wondering if not having the iron Rx is partly to blame...)

But I digress! So without further ado, here's my updated list of books read this year:
