Book Report for the month of June 2004...

Books Read:

  • Grace Hayes, The History of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in World War II: The War Against Japan

  • Rosalind Wiseman, Queen Bees and Wannabes
    Girls being girls. Non-fiction, but filmed as Mean Girls.

In Progress:

  • Brigadier P. J. Greville, The Royal Australian Engineers 1945-1972

New on Shelf:

  • Kim Akass and Janet McCabe, Reading Sex and the City
