    Crap, I just realized I haven’t done June’s yet, I’ll try to read something today. 😳

    I’m in for July–this one should be easy as I’ve got a ton of RS in the pile.

  20. Marg July 2, 2006 at 1:24 AM #

    I’m in…no idea what I am going to read, but I still have a while to figure that out right?

  21. Dylan July 2, 2006 at 2:03 AM #

    Count me in!

    Now, quick question…is this any romantic suspense novel that I want, or does someone else have to assign me a book?

    Either way, I’m in! This sounds like great fun!


  22. Angie July 2, 2006 at 8:48 AM #

    Devon, you choose your own. The main purpose of the TBR challenge is to get you to dig into your TBR pile 😉

  23. ag July 2, 2006 at 9:36 AM #

    I’m in! I’m in!

    Am starting on Black Ice from my pile for the challenge tomorrow. Bought that months ago (think it was with my birthday book voucher) for this. :giggle:

  24. Dylan July 2, 2006 at 10:37 PM #

    Alright, then I’m going to read Killing Time by Linda Howard for the challenge…I’ll finally need to get it open and read it! =)

  29. AngieZ July 5, 2006 at 12:15 AM #

    I would like to join your challenge. I have a few romantic suspenses sitting on my TBR pile. I will read either Slow Burn by Julie Garwood or Every Breath You Take by Judith Mcnaught. Maybe I will try for both. :popcorn:

  30. Tempest Knight July 5, 2006 at 3:22 PM #

    If I weren’t so busy with my wereanimal story and the deadline, I’d jump into this. Good luck to you all! :jump:

  46. jmc July 29, 2006 at 6:05 PM #

    Done! :cheer:

    Actually, I read one R/S book early in the month (Janzen’s Crazy Love) but it wasn’t from my TBR mountain or list.

    More recently, I read Keri Arthur’s Full Moon Rising, which had been on the TBR list since March.

    For Crazy Love review:

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).

Follow me on Twitter
