Books I've read and need to review ~ soon!

Books stacked beside the computer that I've finished reading, but haven't yet reviewed. I'm hoping this post will shame me into getting these reviews written!

Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog ~ by Ted Kerasote ~ nonfiction (coming out in paperback in April)

I Never Saw Paris ~ by Harry I. Freund ~ fiction

Angels of a Lower Flight ~ by S. S. Krabacher

Eleanor vs. Ike ~ by Robin Gerber ~ historical fiction

Forgive Me ~ by Amanda Eyre Ward ~ fiction

Other Goose: Recycled Rhymes for Our Fragile Times ~ by Barbara Wyn Klunder ~ category? (School Library Journal says it's for grade 6 and up; Barnes & Noble thinks the age range is 6 to 9; I say it's for adults who appreciate its humor with a zing!)

Kersplatypus ~ by Susan K. Mitchell ~ children's picture book

Only seven? Goodness, I'm doing better than I thought! I guess I've been mentally including books such as those I've read for online discussions or recommended by friends ... and I can either review those or not. Making this list for myself has helped me see that finishing seven reviews is doable. Hurray!

These are the books I've read for Book Buddies (still reading the most recent one)... which will be reviewed, eventually:
Mar 2008 ~ People of the Book ~ by Geraldine Brooks
Feb 2008 ~ In Lucia's Eyes ~ by Arthur Japin
Jan 2008 ~ Pictures of Hollis Woods ~ by Patricia Reilly Giff
Dec 2007 ~ Cold Comfort Farm ~ by Stella Gibbons
Nov 2007 ~ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas ~ by John Boyne
Oct 2007 ~ The Other Side of the Bridge ~ by Mary Lawson
We discuss one book each month, over there, in case you'd like to join us.

I'm really looking forward to all your reviews. Eleanor vs. Ike sounds like an especially interesting book. I am practclly holding my breath for you to review that one.

I'd like to hear what you thought of Merle's Door. I have a copy of it sitting on my night stand waiting to be read.
