Are you reading many new books this year? This is a new phenomenon for me as I've usually been much too cheap to buy a new release book, and I preferred to wait for the paperback version of books, even ones for authors I am huge fans of. The exposure to publisher's copies and Advanced Reading Copies or Editions has opened up a whole new world of reading to me. Librarything.com has an Early Reader's Program where they draw for a chance to receive and review new release books. How awesome! I won one last month and am waiting patiently for it to arrive, whatever the book was, I think I forget by now. 3M has created a site for reviews of some newly released novels, Novels Now 2008. If you are cheap like me, it's a place to read reviews from blogger types and get an idea if it's a book you might like, before you buy it.
I'm still looking at that Tree in Brooklyn and it's STILL growing. It's a slow tree. It's a book so far I'm preferring to read in between other books, so I started The Chocolate War last night, the last of my Young Adult Challenge reads. I'm in a New England high school; so, not far from my real life, a Maritimes high school. Where is reading taking you today?
