The books I reviewed were (click on link for review):
Chiggers by Hope Larson
A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve

My friend Louise guest posted a review (click on link for review):

If you missed any of my “similar covers” posts this month, they were:
Balancing acts
More women from behind (in which I also explain how I find these covers)
Two couples
Headless woman in a black dress
Red and white robe

A few blog stats:

Top viewed post: More women from behind

Number of books acquired: 53 (I blame Book Fair Week!)


  1. Interesting stats, Avis. I wonder why 'More women from behind' was your top viewed post?

    53 books! Well, I imagine that's not too bad considering you attended two fairs in one week!

  2. You had a good month Avis with all that was going on. I love your similiar covers post.

  3. 53 books!?!?!? where do you put them all? i thought i was bad with 8 new books this month!

    like cindy, i enjoy your 'similar covers' feature...keep up the entertaining work!

  4. Congrats on your accomplishments last month!
