Okay, started at 7:38 a.m. Friday. It’s now 7:35 p.m. and so far I have read 8 books and only "Meh’d" one of them. You’ll have to wait for the full blogs to see which it was and what I thought of the other 7:

Yikes, I took a dinner break so I’d better get back to reading. I will be blogging about all of these.
In fact, the waitress at O’Charley’s probably expressed it best when I described to her some of these books. She said, "O.M.G! I’ve gotta get me those books soon!"
