On Mojo Mom's bookshelf
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you housework....make a blog posting out of it!
This morning I spent a couple of hours getting our house back to "normal" after the holidays. This means that the kitchen is clean, the dining rooom table is one-third cleared off, and my office, well, it's still a mess but that's a project for another day.
As I moved through the house, I picked up the books that were lying around everywhere. As I looked at the stack I thought it made an interesting collection, a snapshot of what is "in play" at the Tiemann household.
It's hard to keep up with all my reading and reviewing, so I am going to list the books and link to them. Most of the books are mine, some are review copies, some are my husband or daughter's. A few are Christmas presents. I will let you guess which are which!
Looks like I will have to break this into 2 parts. Here's the left-hand stack:
