Jen’s Library: What I’ve been reading lately

I’ve had a lot of chaos hovering over me lately, what with the hurricane cleanup, kitchen ants, a sick Mojo, long days at work, and new job prospects, so I’ve been slacking on my book reviews. I’ve still been reading plenty of stuff, just haven’t found the time to write about any of it. I tried to keep a list going so I wouldn’t forget everything, and I’d like to come back and talk about at least a few of these later, when I find more time. What say you, readers? Are there any of these you’d like me to tell you more about? I think I missed a few, too… I wish the library’s website kept a list of all the books I’ve checked out, so I could keep track.

    I’ll try to get to those in the next week or two for you. They’re similar in subject but take different directions with the same concerns.
