Okay, I hate TAGGING people more than anything, believe me, but dear friend JC Martin tagged me, so I’m going to go along with it, do it, and torture others, LOL

Here’s the idea (you can copy this paragraph to use in your post):

I am going to list three categories of books: 5 MUST Read Books, 5 Books on Your Nightstand, and 5 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 5 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 5 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as it goes around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing as they go around the blogosphere. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

5 MUST Read Books:
Them by Nathan McCall
Orange Mint and Honey by Carleen Brice
Seen It All and Done The Rest by Pearl Cleage
