Fran | 11193 comments Let us know what books you are reading or listening to this month....we're always looking for new titles for our tbr shelf!

MountainKat | 21425 comments I'm starting this month with Dark Desires After Dusk by Kresley Cole in audio as I am about to head out the door today. I still haven't decided what I'm going to start reading, but I'm sure I'll figure that out as soon as I get home! I don't do the 'take a few days off' thing Fran was talking about last month! (And I need something to distract me from the crazy winds!!)

Fran | 11193 comments LOL Kat!

You saw how well that little statement held up ;)

I can't decide what to start May out with either, maybe Red and Her Wolf for H&T or Sing for the Monthly Challenge.

Taniesha - to get the book image in your post, click on the 'add book/author' type on top of the comment box. Then type in the name of the book you want to add (put the first or last name of the author as well if the book name is quite similar/same as other book titles) and then click on search. Select the correct book from the list that comes up by clicking on 'add'. You can select whether the book is shown as a link or bookcover selecting the appropriate button at the base of the list.

Hope this makes sense :)

I love audiobooks! They are great for working around the house or running errands and especially driving. I live in the boonies and if I couldn't 'read' on the hour drive into town and again home I would go crazy!

message 40: by Susan (new)

Susan Ward | 5 comments I've finished this monthSomething Takenand Something Returned and Wrong City, and I just finished writing The Girl On The Half Shell, and would love some to read and give me input. You can't know if you're on the mark without reader response.

The other books I just finished are all Indie published books. All outside the mainstream and fun! If you are into something different, not formula then I would highly recommend them.

You are so good at reading all books in a series all at once Questian! I lose interest after book two, or I want to 'savour' the series in another month or so. It is really rare for me to read two books from the same series in one month...
