Well thankfully most publishers do not want you reading Christmas books until after October 1st and before Christmas. In all honesty, books I choose now or request for review are books that I will review in October, Nov, Dec as I am book solid until then.

I'm also eying all your new books... The Avon Addicts box looks like fun, and some of the others look great, too. I really want to read McKinley's Shadows, in part because it's McKinley and in part because it grabbed her and said "write me instead of the sequel to Pegasus."


Thanks for the mention and link to my blogoversary celebration! Now I'm off to check out some of your reviews that I missed this week while trying to make my indexing deadline (which I did, I'm happy to say.)
