Working through my TBR Pile

Here's the latest update on my TBR pile. It seems to grow faster than I can read, but that's my fault. I love books, and whenever I read an interesting synopsis or back cover blurb, I am want to read that book.

I actually wrote two reviews last week for The Children's and Teen's Book Connection (TC&TBC), and I have five books on my desk that I need to write the reviews. I am also almost finished another book.

I removed all the books from this list that had been read and reviewed as of the last time I posted about my TBR pile. Any book that appears in bold is something I've read and reviewed since February 15th.

The total count now stands at 64. Wow!
