Target Bookmarked

Target has a feature – where they hand pick books to read. They call the books that are picked – Bookmarked.

I have noticed Bookmarked books in Target stores for some time now.

But today, I noticed today that the also list all their bookmarked picks online on their web site.

In looking at their Bookmarked picks, I see that of 25 books, I have read 7 of them. And of the ones that I have read, I have enjoyed reading most of them – the one exception being Sister’s Keeper where I cried and cried through out the whole book. That being said, all of the 7 books were all thought provoking in some way and worth the read.

Here is the current list of Target Bookmarked books. I marked the books that I have read with a star (*).

* (I “own” Summer People – for my iPhone – but I haven’t read it yet. Maybe it should be my next book.)

In looking at this list, I am thinking that I may need to buy some of the additional bookmarked books – the ones that I haven’t read yet.

Target, keep up the good work.
