Book Binge


May 5 – May 31, 2008

This one seemed like a no-brainer to me. Mary at It’s Not All Mary Poppins is hosting her annual Book Binge whereby readers simply track the books they read this month and then post about them. The goal is to read as much as you can. The rules are flexible. I’ll be listing my books from May on this post with links to my reviews.

    I love the set-up of your site! It’s so professional-looking: the stars, the start and end dates, and the links to the reviews. This is lovely!

    Mary: Thank you SO much! I have a page where I track all my reads for the year and set them up like this post. It is at the top of my blog titled: 2008 in Review.

  3. Hi – just arrived via the Book Binge list at Mary P’s blog.

    I love your reviews – especially the stars, they’re a great idea. I’m going to have to try some of these books.
