I'm very excited about launching this! I've been working on the icons for it for ages, to be honest, because it takes such a long time to read a book/reread to make notes/design 25 icons per book, but I think it's finally ready! I don't know exactly how often I'll post, but probably a few times a week? :)

Today's launch posts:

Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw EVERYTHING, e.lockhart

Hello, is everything okay in here? I've been really busy with family and work and such. I just now realized there never was a discussion post or new books for February. Is everything all right, or have I totally missed something? (Which by the way is totally possible. I have no problem whatsoever with being called out on something.)

Everyone okay?

The History of Love- No spoilers [Dec. 7th, 2010|09:30 am]

I'm halfway through and I like it so far, but I do feel that sometimes, especially with Leo Gursky's chapters, the author is trying too hard to let that particular character's voice come through. I'm getting a little annoyed with the "And yet." and "But." A few times is okay, but three or four times in one page! It gets a bit in the way of my reading. I was thinking of coming up with a drinking game for it ;)
Thoughts?
