I loveeeeeeeeeeee to read. I would rather go to bed at 8:00 with a good book then do just about anything in the world. I use to think I was totally lame, staring longingly at my warm covers at 7:15 pm, but I’m slowly excepting myself for the book nerd that I am! I went the movies last night and got home at 9:40 and told my husband I was out late. You should have seen the look he gave me!!!
As Nester says, you can learn a lot about a person by what they read. So I am a little scared to share the books that I have spent my time on in 2011. However I want to join up on Nester’s “Books I read in 2011 Link Party” so here goes!!!!
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Color Purple
The Happiness Project
Into the Wild
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (the movie is AWESOME!!!!)
The Girl who Played With Fire
The Same Kind of Difference as Me (favorite book of 2011)
The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
Heaven is for Real
90 Minutes in Heaven
Grace for the Good Girl
One Thousand Gifts
Secret Life of Bees (again)
The Refund (my sister in love gave me the coolest gift this year for Christmas. She gave me a subscription to One Story. One Story is a non-profit literary magazine that features one short story mailed to subscribers every three weeks. I love it!
Books I am currently reading:
The Great Gatsby
The Happiness Project (again!!!)
Fear Not Tomorrow, God is Already There
Books I want to read in 2012:
Does anyone know of a top 100 or top 200 reading list? One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read more and not just at night when I go to sleep. I always read in bed and get through about three or four pages and then I’m out.
What was your favorite book of 2011??? I would love some suggestions for my next read!
