Since my last update on July 1 chronicling my progress through the shelves full of pre-2013 books that I was determined to finally recommend on BooksYALove, I have
- traveled to Singapore and Indonesia, via Japan and Korea,
- driven several hundred miles in Texas presenting IASL’s GiggleIT Project for global student writing through school libraries,
- moved 3 truckloads of semi-tropical plants in containers to their winter home,
- and read many, many eGalleys online with 30-60 day expiration dates.
I haven’t written up as many TBR2012 Challenge books as I did earlier in the year, but did spotlight Nalo Hopkinson’s highly inventive Canadian-Jamaican fantasy The Chaos (my no-spoiler review here) and Jo Knowles’ growing up novel Pearl (more here), which brings my total to 51 for the year. Over one per week – not bad!
What’s on your to-be-read shelf these days?
