Three More Books Read - Cards Finished

I've finished three more books and finally have gotten around to making the cards to document my reading. I definitely have not had time to be as fancy as my first few cards, however, I AM making the cards so that is good. I'm trying to make the fronts a bit more decorative and give a picture into the book themes a bit.
Princess June is an adult novel that I enjoyed quite a bit. I read this for the Korean book club and unfortunately not enough of us read it completely to have a good discussion. Kira Kira (Newbery Medal winner last year, I believe) I listened to on tape in my car over a period of two weeks. Really enjoy books on tape. Even if I only get to listen to a few minutes each time, I love to "live" the lives of the characters throughout my day.
The Best Bad Thing is a book by Yoshiko Uchida, one of the Asian American authors I am writing about for the encyclopedia entries I signed on to do - I really must get to the writing part! I've been enjoying her books, as I do of many of the Asian children's book writers.
