Reading Wrap-up For December at Emeraldfire's Bookmark

Sunday, January 1, 2012

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Emeraldfire around the Internet and this is a reinstatement of my personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews on my old Blogger blog Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transporting all my old reviews over from Shelfari.

Anyway, I started out December with about two hundred unread books lying around the house and ended the month with...umm...uncountable amounts of books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from BookmoochPaperback Swap  or the authors and publishers for review. I have bought several new books as ebooks as well.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:
