Around Here

I’m slowly making progress on my current reads I mentioned last week. I did finish the Best American Poetry 2012 collection which I found sad a lot of times but I was very glad to read this because I found gems from Billy Collins, Sherman Alexie and Mark Strand to name a few. I’m really in the mood to read more poetry and am excited to have another poetry book waiting for me at the library.

Speaking of the library, I actually have an overdue book still out and of course I’ve received a note about some books on hold waiting for me. I think I currently have about 11 holds. I’m sure I’ll go on a library ban in a while to read more from my stacks but for now I’m having fun finding library books.

Somehow when we were at Barnes & Noble last weekend I missed (or maybe it wasn’t out just yet) the latest Mystery Scene Magazine – jumbo Summer edition. Oh my! I really need to get that so I already know what I’ll be looking for this coming weekend.

Oh and happy July! In case you are wondering what to read next, here are the 10 Must-Reads for this month. I’ve got an advance copy of Susan Choi’s, My Education but there are a couple of others on the list that look very interesting. Here’s to a great reading month.
