tell us what you are reading this last week of 2009.
can you believe this year is just about over? it seems like it went by pretty fast to me, lol.
do you make new year's resolutions? if you do, do you keep them?
Hope everything had a lovely Christmas. I finished The Anthologist, which I wasn't crazy about. Started Knit the Season last night. Much more entertaining. It's a pretty short book, so I'll probably get started on The Septembers of Shiraz for a book club I'm joining.
After that I'll start working through my library pile. I can't put into words how much I love the library!
Happy New Year!-Mari
I finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns this morning, and tonight at work I will be starting Stolen by Kelley Armstrong.
Hello....Reading The Weight Of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf....One that I have had at home for awhile....Good Story...
No New Year's Resolutions for me.....will work on getting and staying healthy....less food more exercise....Hugs, Ruth
Good Morning, Everyone!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas.
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer came in at the library, so that's what I'm reading right now. It's the 4th book in the Twilight series. I have to admit, this one started off with a bang. I hope it keeps up the momentum. According to DD and DS's GF it is really, really good. Did I hear right? Another book is in the works? At least I'll be caught up with the series. I can already see with 2 young women in the family reading these books, I'm not going to get out of reading them, too. I have to admit, they are pretty good, even though they are really outside my normal realm of reading material. I guess that's why it's good to have young people in the family. They don't let us old fogies get into a rut, even when it comes to reading!
When I get done with this book I go back to my books here at home. I only got 3 read before this requested book came in at the library. I've got at least 3 more to read before the next trip in. I do agree that libraries are the best places under the sun. It's just really nice to have your own collection to read when there is no sun and the temperatures take a drastic dip. BRRR!!!
I know what you mean. It's not like I don't have a huge amount of my own books to get through, but whenever I go into the library catalog and put something on hold... I just can't help myself... I keep putting more
i'm reading "truly, madly" by heather webber.
i don't make resolutions, i learned a long time ago that i can't keep them. lol
the only thing i try to do is read one more book than i did the year before. i know that's pretty lame, but what can i say.
My kids gave me a real mixed bag of books for Christmas .... not sure just where to start!
The first is a book about living among the Amish called "Plain Secrets". Another is called "Used and Rare", about one couple's start in book collecting. Another is called "The Lives They Left Behind", about the discovery of 400 suitcases found in the attic of a closed psychiatric hospital in New York. And then came a book on Victorian houses, which had a lot of pictures but I can't think of the name.
One set of books was the intro to a special gift .... I received a book on "Hearst Castle" and one on "Solvang", along with a card stating that all my adult children were all taking off work a couple of days in February to take me to both these places ! !! ! What an unexpected pleasure to look forward to!
