Read In 2014

What I have read in 2014
Total Number Read: TBA

Looking for reviews, or when I read them? I post via GoodReads and Twitter as I complete the book(s) .

Suggest Something for me to read:
~ @ What I’m Consuming (email)
~ Or leave a comment on a books post
~ Or reply to @ThePearLady on Twitter
Yes, I do consider reading what I’m suggested!

An asterisk (*) will show a book NOT from the library (I support the library first as often as I can, so that’s most of my book list).
Italics: I’m reading the book now.
(e-book): an electronic book read through my e-reader app or by computer
(audiobook): Thanks to certain authors, I’m getting into the spoken word these days.
