mission101 February_March_April_May Books

Normally, I post once a month regarding my book consumption but my computer went bad, I lost tons of information, had to refigure out so much, and consequently, got disgusted. So, it's taken until now to catch-up.

I've also decided on a new format. I'm posting all the book covers to flickr with a short synopsis on each. If a book interests, click on its cover and you will be transported to flickr and my concise run-down. Otherwise, I just like how it looks...pretty colors.
