Jen’s Summer Reading List

June 23, 2009

My summer reading list consists of books that I have either purchased or been given over the last couple of years and are waiting to be read. I picked them up at library sales, garage sales, used book stores etc. I made an agreement with myself that I will borrow NO books from the library until all of these books have been read. After this list, I want to finish reading Robert J. Conley’s Novels of the Real People.
