Book Shelf

I'm no longer in school, so I need to keep the brain activity going somehow. I've taken a new affinity to reading-- fiction, non-fiction, biographies, you name it! Now that I've got my own book club going (see blog here) I'm even more inclined to read everytime I should be doing something else...

YA- Young Adult
F- Fiction
NF- Non-Fiction
BC- Book Club Read
A- Autobiographical
GN- Graphic Novel
M- Memoir
