Before I get to my list of reading goals for this next month, here are some reviews I've recently published:
First, it's been fun posting new giveaways each day in the 5 Minutes for Books Mother's Day Giveaway. You can enter through Thursday to win any or all of these books. I personally reviewed a couple of books over there, but check out the whole list.
And I posted the very first entry in the 5 Minutes for Mom Mother's Day Giveaway -- for a programmable Crock-Pot Smart-Pot. Check out that contest, and all the others as well.
