Blog News- SCANDALOUS BOOKS
As always, the delightful Rachel at Parajunkee's View had a great idea, which was to designate which books would be appropriate for readers of all ages and which ones, suffice it to say, would not. I'm a firm believer in doing your own research and deciding for yourself if a book is something that will tickle your fancy, but consider the dandy little picture posted here fair warning- the book whose review it's attached to is probably Not Safe for Work, Not Safe for Church Functions, Not Safe to Give To Your Mom (but hey, that depends on your mom,) and basically indicates a book that has content- sex, violence, or thematic stuff- that some folks might not be keen to read. It also can help you cut to the chase if you're looking for something extra smutty, so everyone wins!

Fall into Reading Challenge 2009 Wrap-Up
Today marks the end of the Fall into Reading Challenge, and out of the ten books I challenged myself to read, I read three. Not so awesome, but one unexpected benefit of doing this challenge is it made me make decisions about books that have been on my shelf for a long time. If I'm not going to get around to reading them, what's the point of having them? I've decided, then, that the seven books I didn't get around to reading will be going to a new home (probably a library donation.) I'm glad I participated in the challenge, and will probably do so again, but I think I'll use different criteria to pick my books next time.
