A New Feature: Taking It Off...the Shelf

Truth: A lot of us book bloggers have a ton of books. Truth: I honestly don't think I can read all of the books I own. Not unless I win the lottery. Enter my new feature: Taking It Off...the Shelf. I have quite a few books that I've been meaning to read (some of them for almost five years) so I've decided to read one book off my shelves (the ones in the above picture) every month. It's not a huge commitment and I'm hoping I can read more than one, but it's a start.

First up, a book I bought when I was still working at the October 2009. Yeah.

Here's what Beginner's Greek is all about:
Is love at first sight possible or just an old-fashioned romantic idea? And what if, to further complicate things, you meet the love of your life and then lose her phone number? Then what if, after the impossible happens and you find her again, she's now about to marry a roguish lothario who is also your best friend? The complications don't end there for Peter Russell, the winning hero of James Collins' charming, generous, and romantic first novel. Part modern-day Jane Austen, part Tom Wolfe,is a romantic comedy of the highest order, with characters who are perfectly, charmingly real as they swerve and stumble from fairy tale to social satire and back again.
I'm hoping I can get my review up at the end of the month. Wish me luck!

Happy reading :)


  1. Great idea! I love the cover of this book and can't wait to see what you think about it!
