Keeping Up with the Reading Stack

Amazon just released a list of the best romance books published so far this year, according to their editors.  I am kind of appalled at myself that I've only read one of them -- Laura Kaye's Hard as You Can, the second book in a great new romantic suspense series.  I have a couple of the others in my pile of books to read and I am fan of many authors on the list, but I don't guess that counts in my favor.

What about you?  Have you read any on this list?  Do you think they're the best romance books so far this year?

50 Books Your Child Should Read Before Kindergarten

Reading on a Dodo at Evelyn Meador Branch LibraryWe know, parents, we know. It seems like every time you turn around there's another talking head telling you that your child needs to do this and do that, or else...well...the talking head shudders to think of the dire consequences for your kid's future. Of course, this all plays on your natural fears, and of course, you would do anything to help little Joe or Jolene grow up to be a happy, successful adult, so you play Mozart around the clock even though both you and your child would rather listen to something just a little more funky, you flash flashcards at the breakfast table, you tilt the foot of the bed up 3 degrees so that the blood circulating through that precious little body bathes the pituitary gland. The end result? You're exhausted, your kid is bewildered, and a new talking head is lurking inside the TV waiting to pounce the next time you turn it on.
