So far I've read five of them all the way through. I need to get the reviews up. That's next on the to do list.



  1. I had a few of these that I gave away, darn.

  2. Oooo that sucks. All the ones with stars are the ones that I currently own. The three I've borrowed (one from you and two from Michelle at work) I've finished reading. Except for those three all the ones without stars beside them I have to beg, borrow, or buy.
