Christine PNW (moonlight_reader) I am mostly going to be doing this project on Booklikes (here and on my blog, but I thought I would start a thread here as well.

The blog page where I will be indexing posts/information is here for anyone who is interested.

My goal is to go from May 1 to August 31. That's 12 books a month, which is pretty aggressive. I figure, though, I can bring in some YA/kids books if I start falling behind.

Christine PNW (moonlight_reader) I have been hanging out in the northern "M" states this week!

I visited Tamarack County by William Kent Krueger, in the north woods of Minnesota.



and, also, a log cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with A Cold Day in Paradise by Steve Hamilton.



Both of them were very wintry reads for a mild spring day.
