Ten

I know it's been over a year since I've posted here. But today is my tenth blogiversary, and since I started posting over here before I moved to Wordpress, I thought I'd post back here to say thank you to my first readers.

If you want to keep up with me (since I'm not able to double-post as I tried to do for a while), you can now follow me by email through Wordpress, on Twitter @alibrarymama or on Facebook if you know me personally, or you can add me to a blog reader if you use one. And know that I am still checking in over here, even if it's not daily and I don't comment often.

Happy reading to all of you!

More Catch-up

I keep thinking that someday I won't be posting to wordpress right before shift change or quitting time, so that I could post here in a leisurely and timely manner .. it keeps not happening. I do apologize. At any rate, here are the latest reviews:
