Books We Read – July 2011

Another slow month … bigger chapter books, more time in the pool, and a week of misfortunate events & summer swim championships! We haven’t put up many reviews, but would love to get our visitors reading YOURS! We are using InLinkz on the Reading Tub website now.  InLinkz (www.inlinkz.com) offers us a more secure system for connecting our reviews – and has thumbnails, too!!  I cannot say enough great things about Team Inlinkz and their level of support and service … or about how they helped us convert 2000(!) book reviews to the new tool. Or just add a link to a favorite recent read below! Received: 20   New Reads: 9 …. New Reviews: 3 Please use these category … Read more

At the bottom of our list we’ve got a list of reviews for books we’ve listed in previous months. Received: 3 ….. New Reads: 6 ….
