wow. I can't imagine where you find the time for so many great books and reviews. I find myself working hard to do three a week. Any chance you'd consider contributing a guest review to my site?

Pussreboots

I read whenever I can and I spend about an hour blogging after my kids go to bed. I've done guest reviews in the past but it's been awhile. What sort of review are looking for?

Wow! 32 books in one month!!!Do you do anything besides read? Also love the cool graphics. How do you produce them?

I have a full time job, two kids and a number of hobbies. Many of the things I review each month are either picture books or short stories, so the overall page count isn't as high as you might think.

I make the graphics in Photoshop. I use a different layer for each book cover and put a drop shadow on each layer. Then I move around each layer until I get something that looks good and where I can read all the titles.
