Good morning! It’s Tuesday, and because many new books are released on Tuesdays, I have been adding to my Kindle collection as if there were no tomorrow. And you know what else? Most of them were not new releases. I did get one of the new Kindle Prime books…but that was yesterday.
Above, note my little country cupboard which sits in the dining area…those print books are some of the ones left after my various purges. I do have a few scattered throughout the condo…and some day I will count them. I’m guessing I still have between 400-500 books.
Here is another cupboard with old favorites:

As you can see, I haven’t read that many of them…yet. If you’ve been following this blog, you also know I’m participating in the Read the Books You Buy Challenge, and have read 40 so far this year. Some of them are obviously from the last half of 2015, which counts for the challenge.
On the positive side, I have read 22 books I bought from January through April.
I’ve also been catching up on review books, and have no unread Vine books on my stacks at this moment. Of my NetGalley ARCs, I have one to be released in August, and two in October. So it’s all good.
I also have an author review requested book to complete…soon.
What are you reading, buying, or reviewing lately?
