Initially “Discovered @ the library,” these items caught my eye on the shelving cart, in the book drop, displayed, or advertised. In recent years, I took to listing these books that caught my eye on my TBR (To Be Read) page. When I more regularly posted, I shared one TBR per month. I typically posted a TBR on the first Monday of each month.
So, should I continue this feature on Jorie’s Reads? I look forward to hearing from my readers this week. I will extend special consideration to any response received before midnight on Sunday, June 12, 2016.
Since I saw many books I added to my TBR list during my hiatus, I will showcase several of these books during the week of June 06 – June 11.
This post is the first in the 2016 series on Jorie’s Reads:
The U.S. celebrates Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May. In honor of this celebration, I collected books with APAHM-related themes as well as authors of Asian-Pacific heritage. Check out my 2014 shelfie. What books deserve a spot on the shelf?

Just because I’ve been quiet doesn’t mean I’ve stopped reading. Check out what I’ve read in 2015 by clicking here! According to my widget, I’m 2 books ahead of schedule! Thank you, Goodreads, for the images and handy-dandy widgets!
Learning of author Colleen McCullough’s death today made me recall her book The Thorn Birds. The miniseries based on her novel of the lovely Meggie Cleary’s doomed love of parish priest, Ralph de Bricassart, inspired me to read the book.
