Auntie Nettie Reads A LOT 2013 - 3rd Quarter

via the Twitters and TOTALLY sarcastically
Well, I usually read a lot MORE  (see the earlier lists), but this year has also been "read"iculous. This quarter I made an effort to stop staring at my computer at home after work, or at the device on the train after work. My to-read list and request lists are still PAGES long despite this effort. I'm hoping a road trip with my mother to the Cape will give me a chance to work my way through a pile of ARCs and unread new books.

The usual caveat applies: If you are just finding the blog, please note that this list was maintained mainly so that I could remember what I've read this year. The record does not fully represent me or all of my interests, so don't judge my reading habits. My interests change quite frequently. Also, as a general rule, I don't do book recommendations or link to major retailers or publishers (UNLESS IT'S MAH FREEENNDZZZ). Except for the ARCs listed below [thanks major publishers!], most of these books came from MY library or a public library. 

Go forth, use your library card and READ!
