Ericka Clay added a status update: The Sunday before my library closed I thought to myself, "I better go stock up." But did I? Nope! Fortunately, I still have to finish my small stack of books, and I found a pretty neat app called My Books that features a number of classics I'd like to start reading.

What about you guys? Are you all set with reading material?
