Monthly Reads - May 2011

May was pretty amazing. With the start of Spring and BEA and visiting with my family in New York, I had a really great month. I didn't do so well in the reading department. I did however add 2 groupings to my totals. You'll probably see more children's book reviews on the blog because NetGalley + Picture Books + Daughter who loves books + iPad = very much awesomeness!
Need to get back into a regular reading program - like setting aside an hour every night just for reading (and no computer!). We'll see :)

Oh - and I'm so post dating this post back to June 1st...because I'm a little OCD and my Monthly Reads post needs to be the first one of every month :)

Ok - so on to the books!
