of my last few reviews, I have 2 books I bought, and 4 were from publishers.

I did a quick check - 9 from the library. 5 ARC's, 1 purchased, 4 from work.

Looking forward to seeing what you thought of The Body Finder.

I got about four ARCs from various sources, finished two. And I got a book to review from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and GoodReads. I finished the former--it was great--and am in the middle of the latter, which is promising to be the same. I've really enjoyed writing reviews because it's like taking a voluntary English class, analyzing literature. Woohoo. =] Then I just bought a couple from a library book sale and mooched Tunes For Bears to Dance to by Robert Cormier from Bookmooch.
