January Reads

I believe my bookie friends will agree, that almost as much time is spent on book websites as it is actually reading. As if it isn’t enough that I update what books I’m reading on facebook, on goodreads, and on Bookcrossing, but I also play games on Bookobsessed, and trade on Paperbackswap.

Then I saw a new way to post cover pics on the blog, and I can’t resist. I want to make a visual list of all the books I read this month. I want to see it, in full color, and not only that but I feel the need to make you look at it too. It’s like that contest in Elementary school where you bet yourself how many books you could read in one month, and if you met your goal, you got a coupon for a free pizza. Except with this I’m just trying to bully my friends into reading good books. 🙂

Books I read in January, all of them worthy of recommendation to you.

You’ve read ALL that in January!?!?!?
Luckily I don’t like pizza!

I’ve read only “Embers” (ages ago) and I LOVED it!!!
“Snow”, “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan”, “Omnivore’s Dilemma” and “The Namesake” are all on my TBR pile.
