  5. Fedora says:

    Hmm… in July I added another 37 books, and 2 e-books–196 for the year? I read Shirlee Busbee, Shirley Roberts, Carol Culver, Claudia Dain, Anne Rainey, Louise Allen, and Sarah McCarty for the first time. I would really recommend Beth Ciotta’s Jinxed, Charmed, and Seduced–they were fabulously funny and fun and sexy. And I read another couple by Sarah Mayberry–she’s an auto-buy–she hits it out of the park every single time!

  6. Fedora says:

    Oh, and I’m sorry, I would love to read Her One Desire!

  7. limecello says:

    Yay you! :X I haven’t been keeping tally – but I’m pretty sure I’m behind last year. I think I read over 200 books by this time last year… but this year I’m only nearing 200.

  8. Beth R says:

    I’d love to read Her One Desire

    I’m getting ready to start Stephenie Meyers Twilight series, I bought it for myself and my daughter scarved it up

  9. Teresa W. says:

    My total for the year is only 40! Wow your kicking my butt. Recently finished Real Vampire Get Lucky by a new author for me Gerry Bartlett. I’m almost done with Breaking Dawn and loving it! I’d like to be in for Her One Desire.

  10. azteclady says:

    I keep feeling inadequate when compared to you, Jennifer *chuckle* I mean, seriously, I think that this year I’ve read less than half what you’ve read! The good news is that I’ve read quite a few new-to-me authors lately.

    I would very much like to read Ms Killion’s book–she’d be another new-t0-me author.

  11. Jennifer Y says:

    Hey, don’t feel bad or inadequate! This just means I have no life. LOL

  12. Maureen says:

    My reading is slow. We adopted two kittens this month and they take up a surprising amount of time but one book I pulled out of my TBR pile and loved was Caroline Linden’s A Rake’s Guide to Seduction.
    I know I’d love to read Her One Desire. I looked for it in Borders the other day and couldn’t find it.

  13. Eva S says:

    Oh, I’d love to read Her One Desire!

    I’ve read about 30 books this month, two new-to-me authors Larissa Ione:Pleasure Unbound and Charlene Teglia: Wicked Hot, two great books!
    Some of the others: Sophia Nash:The Kiss, Lorraine Heath:In Bed with the Devil and Eloisa James: Duchess By Night, all great historicals.
