At first I didn't understand what you meant by two a day. Re-read? talk about them? review them? Then I figured out (mainly by LOOKING at your lists) that you were talking about categories. Then I was able to relax. I was really getting frustrated.

Thanks for the lists though. I work in a library and I'm always on the lookout for good books, and book recommendations. Do you mind if I copy your list? Just for library wishlist purposes.

Yes - Mardel please feel free to copy and you can even paste.

And I've reviewed many of these titles on my blog.

Ahh, I read your reply and had a little chuckle - thanks! :)

I just read Rain Stomper after seeing it on your list. Great read. I love the illustrations of the girl as well.
