Posted about some library work (1, 2), caught up on almost all my July reviews (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7), posted five In My Mailbox posts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), compiled/re-commented on some classic reviews (1, 2, 3), and some miscellaneous posting (1, 2, 3).

Whew. I’m going to try and be MUCH better about getting a review out every day until I’m caught up with my reviews. I go back and forth about whether or not to hold reviews until their release date (I did that this month), or to just post them right away. I’ll probably continue to debate that.

Up next on the blog: BBAW, and a feature about where I do my reading.

Man! My August list was terrible-the books weren’t but the amount I read was. I think I was recovering from Summer Reading Program and then with grad school starting up again, I didn’t get as much read. But now with Children’s Lit this semester I’ll be reading like crazy!
