  1. You are just so organized when it comes to reading!!

  2. 14 books in February??!!!

    You're killing me.....

  3. Oh yeah, and you're brave for putting your books acquired on your website. I wouldn't dare do that for fear my husband would see it!

  4. stephanie - it's an illness, I can't help it.:)

    jill - I'm thinking. It's a hard one!

    3m - He doesn't look at this so it's not so bad, and some were publisher books. I didn't buy them all.
    I'm surprised it ended up being 14books. I will kill you this month in books- it's my March break. I'm going to raid the school library for the week as I'm hoping for a YA bonanza.
