Jen's Notes: June 14, 2009

Do you have notes all over your work space?? Do you use sticky notes or scraps of paper to remember important information? I tend to find sticky notes and scraps all over my desk at home and work. They might contain websites, books to read, or review sites to join. All important stuff that I seem to misplace! So this feature will allow me to organize my sticky notes and actually find the info at a later date. What a novel idea!!

I spent a fair amout of time this evening reviewing book blogs. The following is a list of books that interested me and where I read about them.
Book Recommendations:
  1. Julie and Julia
  2. The Cradle - Patrick Somerville (Bookmarks Book Review Newsletter)
  3. Columbine - Dave Cullen (Bookmarks Book Review Newsletter)
  4. Prayers for Sale - Sandra Dallas (Reading Group Gold Recommends)
  5. The Glassblower of Murano - Marina Fiorato (Reading Group Gold Recommends)
  6. Honolulu - Alan Brennert (author of Molokai)

My info is all safe and sound!! Time to throw away my sticky notes until next time.

Happy Reading!
