Books 2010

Once upon a time, there was a girl who spent most of her free time with her nose stuck in a book.  But then that little girl grew up and her free time became less & less.  However, she still reads occasionally when she’s stopped at a red light or not on Facebook the internet.

One of her goals for 2010 is to read more.   Here she will share what she’s reading and review what what she’s finished.  Thanks, little brother, for the idea.

    This looks like a good list–I had a reading goal this year myself. Did you like Kite Runner? I’m usually a big John Irving fan, but I wasn’t completely taken with Widow for One Year.

      Hey Michelle!

      I just started Kite Runner this week! I’m only in about 6 chapters, but so far loving it…of course, there’s not many cross-culture genre books that I don’t like!
      I’ve also just started reading A Widow for One Year…only on page 136. John Irving was recommended to me by one of our fellow teachers and this novel was on clearance at Half Price Books, so it became my first venture with Irving. So far, I’m liking it pretty good. The characters are intriguing, but I haven’t really connected with any of them…I don’t really care for them (but maybe that’s the point?). But, it keeps me interested enough to want to keep reading!
