You've got very diverse books on your reading list. I tend to stick to fiction only. :-)

I'm reading it with a more critical eye than I have in the past. Anne's starting to get on my nerves. I wasn't expecting this outcome.

Really enjoyed your review of Pretties, it's a series I'm hoping to pick up soon just because it sounds so interesting.

Ahhh...Anne of Green Gables! I really really want to read this series, as it's one I truly loved watching in my youth.

Enjoy your week and don't research too much! :o) Thanks for stopping by earlier too!

For Anne of Green Gables, I'm re-reading a free ebook version of the book. Actually it's a scanned copy from the first edition.

When things calm down with my research I might pick up the third book in Westerfeld's series.

UGH! I hit reset instead of submit. Guess I'm getting tired. You have interesting research and makes me wonder what you are studying. The Quest of Merlin's Map sounds interesting. Have a great week.

I'm working on a masters of library information science. I have two term papers due in December. One is on the use of GIS (geographic information systems) in disaster response and the other is on the use of blogs by public libraries.

So far it's going just fine. I'm a fast reader and a pretty fast note taker.

I've been wanting to read Red Pyramid, but have decided to wait until I read the Percy Jackson books first :) Have a great week and enjoy your books!

I read the Percy Jackson series too before I started. But you don't have to. Carter and Sadie aren't part of Camp Half Blood.
