Total Time Read: 1 hour 50 minutes

Pages Read Today: 100 (Twelfth Night) and  142 (The Sweet Far Thing)

Comments: Before going to bed last night (it was after midnight), I started Twelfth Night, a collection of 12 sexy holiday stories.  I’ve found that I do better reading short stories before bed.   Dove into The Sweet Far Thing sitting at the pool.  I’m sure I’ll read a bit before bed, but I’m cutting it off now for the update.

Mini Challenge: From IBBookBlogging

Question 1:  What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.

Hmm… such choices this year.  I’m going to go with Siege by Rhiannon Frater.  Besides the fact that it’s part of a trilogy about zombies, the cover has a great contrast going on with shadows and fire.  Plus, I just received the entire trilogy in the mail.  Can’t wait to get to them…

Question 2:  Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?

Yes, I do.  I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of book snob.  I really bad cover can turn me off to reading the book.  Dynamic covers draw me to books.
