Upcoming Reviews On the Horizon

Wow it has been a busy early spring. I have fallen quite behind with my Literal Life postings but wanted to take some times to post a list of the novels I have read and will be reviewing here very soon.

I have been busy in my reading, owing to two factors (not including the general state of bibliophilia that encompasses me, that is) : a) the acquisition of a Sony Reader in early February and, b) participation in the HarperCollins Canada 50 Book Pledge. The pledge is not too much of a stretch for me; I read nearly 70 books in 2010. I don’t put too much pressure on myself or get stressed about reading MORE, but between reading for work and reading for pleasure (though, to be fair, it is all rather pleasurable), I go through a sizable stack of books each year. Having an electronic reader, though, has really amped up the reading. In Particular, I have been enjoying borrowing ebooks from the Toronto Public Library. It is so efficient!
