Reading in 2010



I love to read! I was that nerdy girl growing up who always had my nose in a book, whatever I was doing. I still don't like to drive because as a passenger I can ignore the driver and delve into the character's lives and totally immerse myself in a fictional world. I take a book to the city with me in my purse just in case I get bored...in New York City... 


I thought I'd share some books that I've read so far - which haven't been as many as usual because must I tell you again, I am tired ALL THE TIME! Reading right now just makes me want to close my eyes. I used to be able to finish a book in a matter of hours, it now takes me at least a week and sometimes longer! This is so foreign to me, and makes me feel like a failure! (Drama queen? Maybe a little.) Which is why I have to find another hobby! So I decided to sign up for a half marathon and run! Polar opposite activites - I went from curling up on the couch with snacks and a good cup of tea to having to get off the couch and exercise! What was I thinking!? But, I digress...


But first - some books I read at the end of last year that you must read!!


The Help - by Kathryn Stockett
The Mark of the Lion series - by Francine Rivers
3:16 - by Max Lucado
The thirteenth Tale - by Diane Setterfield
The Tea Rose - by Jennifer Donnelly
The Winter Rose - by Jennifer Donnelly
He Chose the Nails - Max Lucado

Now for this year -

A Lineage of Grace series - by Francine Rivers
Chasing Harry Winston - by Lauren Reisberger
A Northern Light - by Jennifer Donnelly
The forgotten Garden - by Kate Morton
The Last song - by Nicholas Sparks (don't worry this is the third time I've read this book)
The Friday Night Knitting Club - by Kate Jacobs ( I was hoping for some inspiration)
A Reliable Wife - Robert Goolrick 
When Christ Comes - Max Lucado

And currently - 


Nothing like curling up on the couch with a nice cup of hot tea and a good book - how old did I just sound? Like the 60 year old I am on the inside, I'm sure. 

Now, go pick up a book and read!! And if you don't like to read... then I feel sorry for you. I'm just sayin. 

PS I'm always open to suggestions!
