Waiting Book List

As has been all too usual, health issues surprised me again and I still haven't been able to get back to reviews.  But I have kept reading and listening to books.  Sometimes, I even remember to take notes for eventual reviews. :)  I've probably forgotten some, but here is a list of books I remember reading since I wrote my last review.  Hopefully I will get to them before I completely forget my impressions of them!

Combine those two short books into one review and it'll totally count for CBR!

I don't think anyone is really doing page counts and will stab you.

Thanks! I was thinking I would do that if I get to them before this year is up. Otherwise, I'll just do them for non-CBRIV reviews. :)

There is a 100page limit mentioned in the CBR info. somewhere. Those are well short of that - maybe should be counted as more "short stories" than books, but with audiobooks and ebooks, people don't seem to make those distinctions as much.
