Ready to read? As usual, I’m trying to read more … I go through spurts where I will read two books a week and then nothing for two months. It’s terribly frustrating to ME because I want to read more, I enjoy reading, always have, but I just can’t seem to tear myself away from the computer (i.e. Twitter – darn you Twitter!!)
I complain that the boys spend too much time on their computers, and yet, here I am setting a STELLAR example. Since I’ve vowed to be a good example for my boys, I’m going to really try and read more so they will look back on this time period and say, “Man, mom sure read a lot,” as opposed to, “Man, mom sure goofed off on the computer a lot.”
At any rate, my average reading rate is two books per month, (and when I say average, I mean average in the loosest since of the word), so I’ll keep it realistic and list six/seven books I plan on reading before June 20th.
- (read) One True Thing by Anna Quindlen
- (read) Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
- (read) 1st to Die by James Patterson
- (read) The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
- (read) Daddy’s Girl by Lisa Scottoline

- (read)Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
ADDED: Chocolat by Joanne Harris, Meet Me in Venice by Elizabeth Adler, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, The Guy Not Taken by Jennifer Weiner, Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer, The Sinner by Tess Gerritsen
In addition, these books will be for sale in my Amazon book store after I read them, if you’re interested.
(I’ll be turning the book store back on shortly – stay tuned!)
