Eva In an attempt to keep reading (now that I'm no longer forced to) after completing my English BA, I have joined this group. Let's see if I can do this.

I'm in the middle of my first three books. (Curse my bad habit of reading books simultaneously.)

Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments LOL I used to have a different book in every bathroom, another one in the living room and another in the bedroom. Made for some interesting dreams.

Lisa Haha. I always am reading more than one book. Need one for before bed and another one in my bag at all times (in case I get a free minute), plus a library book or two thrown in!
