Books I Have Read Lately

 

Hey, Nerd Alert.

I started keeping a list of the books I’ve read lately.  Why?  I don’t know.  I love book lists, and book diaries, and Goodreads.com, but I am always too lazy to keep up with them.  We’ll see if I can keep up my book diary here. And now, if anyone asks, Hey Katie, what are you reading these days?  Here’s the answer.  I’M READING ALL OF THE BOOKS.  (I wish.  Not enough lifetimes available.)

Aw, man. Totally dropped the ball during the Holiday season. Ok, back to keeping a book diary.
