MLOKnitting 888 Books

In January I had surgery, I had a lot of time for lighter fiction. Also, our local comic book store had a 50% off sale so I got a ton of comic books - as did my husband - which I did get through while recuperating. So, I ended up adding a lot of those (some, very, very good) to the YA/Children's Lit group.

I downloaded all of John Fox Jr.'s books onto my Palm and am attempting to read them as ebooks. If I can get used to that, there will be even more places I can read unobtrusively!

As you can see, I am a bit of a history and fantasy nut. I do reserve the right to add and change if the books are too horrible to finish! And, I can't remember the names of some of the books in my TBR list that I've included as part of the challenge - but I will be updating with that soon.

Of course, I just combined the audiobooks with the regular books so I could knit and read at the same time.
