If you haven't found Shelfari yet you need to check it out. Especially if you like to read. As you can see I have been busy adding books. I finished "Extras" and I really liked it until the end. For me it sort just went "splat" at the end. Most reviews I have read have liked it. And don't get me wrong, I liked it but, I don't know the end was just not as good as some he has written. Since my last blog I also finished "So Yesterday" also by Scott Westerfield and have started "The Book Thief". As always I will let you know what I think after I finish it.

Okay I have found what I want to blog about

Well today I finally decided to find my voice. Today's ramblings are about the book I have finished and the book I have started. Book I just finished "The Eye, the Ear and the Arm" by Nancy Farmer. Loved her other stuff so I thought I would give this a try. I loved that it took place in Zimbabwe. Don't you get tired of people referring to Africa like it is a country and not a continent with very diverse cultures and politics. Well I digress. Anyway, I liked this book. Surprisingly I learned some new info, which I always like. Now it wasn't my favorite Nancy Farmer book. That is still a toss up between "Sea of Trolls" and "House of the Scorpion". But as always you can count on Nancy Farmer taking you to yet another country! Worth a read. On to my current read, "Extras" by Scott Westerfeld. OMH I was so excited that their was a FOURTH book. I had to read it! I am about 1/3 of the way through it and so far it is not a disappointment. I will let you know when I finish it how I feel about it.

Here ends my first blog posting. I am pretty sure I will keep posting about books. Share your thoughts with me
