I have to start this posting by apologizing for not getting one up last week, midterms were this past week and I was forced to do the bare minimum for the blog in between my bouts of studying. That being said, there are a lot of great covers that have been released in the last two weeks.
Have an ereader? Never have time to go to the library but want to be able to check out books? Depending upon the type of ereader you have you can check out ebooks from a library using Overdrive. You can search for libraries and titles to find what you are looking for.
