March Reads

I just learned a really neat trick on how to create a table in blogger. So I'm showing off. Here is a table of my March reads.




The next trick I want to learn is how to create a column on the left with images of the book covers. Not sure if that is possible. Never could get that to work in Excel.

Update: I figured out how to add images but it was a lot of work resizing them.

Now I suppose I should write a review or two or a dozen. I have 3 half finished. One of them is for Kristie on a very favorite book of hers.

All of the the B+ books were great but Breathless by Laura Lee Guhrke was outstanding and almost an A if not for a couple niggles that bothered me but still a great read.


100 books

Here I am. Trying to get back to normal and catching up with blogs. I have been reading quite a bit out of my TBR and decided to check my spreadsheet to see how many books are left there. Imagine my surprise when it came to 100!!!! I have made progress it seems. The last time I had checked it came to about 200. I think that was two years ago.

Here is my secret... you must read more from your TBR than you buy! Doh!

Since I'm unemployed I have been reading more from the library. When I see a book I want, I first check my library catalog. I have found that our library keeps a great selection of romances. Out of the 28 books I have read so far this year, 14 were out of my TBR with a couple bought new and the rest were library books.

P.S. I have been out of the blogging world lately and am desperately trying to catch up. I thought I saw a comment post by Maili over at DA. Was I imagining that this is our same Maili from mcvane.com? Someone (Kristie?) set me straight. She's been gone a long time (but not forgotten).
