Comments for the Books Read in June

<"070406a">-->Pile of booksBooks Read in June: 07/04/06

With the television networks (and no cable by choice) now in reruns, we've been keeping our T.V. except for a rented movie, DVD or for something Sean might want to watch (often times Pokémon). This quiet time has given me lots of opportunity to read. I finished twenty-four books in June. They were a nice combination of genres and age levels. There are some children's books in there but not as many in previous months, though that will change again once Harriet is born.

Here is my list. If you want to read the full reviews, I have included links to BookCrossing.
