Q: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

GEORGIA'S ANSWER: I have a few unread e-books on my computer(4), some of which I will be reading this month to post reviews. Does that count? Nothing unread on my shelves. I usually get my books from the library, read them and return. Right now, I am caught up.

Here's a book that needs to be on your 2012 TBR
As the economy worsens there are many new people falling into homelessness from the middle class.  These people are the most unprepared for what they will find in the streets and therefore the most likely to be victimized.  Follow the journey of Ella, homeless only 6 months, as she learns the sometimes vicious ways of the street.  How Would YOU Fare in the Streets?  Don't Make the Mistakes Ella Made.
