The end of my summer

This is my last week of summer vacation. Next week, I go back for my second year as a junior high librarian. I had planned to read a bunch of YA books this summer, but I only read a couple so far. I might read one or two more before students return to school two weeks from Monday. I have read several books this summer. I need to blog about them and post reviews of the two that are Early Reviewer books at LibraryThing. For now, though, I will just list what I've read this summer.
  1. Hero by Perry Moore
  2. Eleven Minutes by Paul Coehlo
  3. Among Other Things, I've Taken Up Smoking by Aiobhean Sweeney
  4. Christine Falls by Benjamin Black
  5. Skim by Mariko Tamiki and Jillian Tamiki
  6. Love Marriage by V.V. Ganeshananthan
  7. The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney by Suzanne Harper
  8. Drown by Junot Diaz
  9. Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
  10. The Murder Room by P.D. James
Wow! Ten books in just over two months. Pretty good for a slow reader like me. I will finish at least one more this week, Have You Found Her by Janice Erlbaum. Plus, I have read about 100 pages of War & Peace. I need to set aside 30 minutes to an hour each day to read some of it because I want to finish it before the end of the year.

Now, I need to go beat Valerie at Rummikub. :-)
