I read this book

I read a book to earn this badge: 
The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food by Jan Berenstain

Read a book

I read a book to earn this badge: 
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
I found this book to be interesting, very coming of age with the characters and their lifestyles. It was somewhat long and drawn out, and it also didn't discuss much baseball, more involved with the characters and their lives. Overall it's a good book.

Finished audiobook "Legend" by Marie Lu

I read a book to earn this badge: 
Legend by Marie Lu
This was a good read, er, listen in  the young adult dystopian genre. Set in Los Angeles sometime in the future, climate change has wiped out a good portion of the former U.S. population and has triggered chaos and war between a now-divided territory. Teenagers Day and June are in opposing factions. He is wanted for crimes against the Republic, and June is determined to track him down at all costs. But the ideological lines that divide them are not as clear as they seem. Their attraction toward each other only adds to the complications.

Read a Michigan Mystery

I read a book to earn this badge: 
The Danger Box by Blue Balliett

The Danger Box by Blue Balliett — This wasn't my favorite of Balliett's books, but it was still an interesting mystery. It ended up being more about Charles Darwin and scientific investigation than I expected, and had a little less Michigan flavor than I was hoping for, but still enjoyable.
