10 Books

Untitled-1

Today I hit 10 books read in 2013. That’s 1.25 books a week. We’re now in the 8th week of the year. I’m feeling quite confident that I can reach my pledge this year. So far this year I’ve read: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Beyond the Sling by Mayim Bialik, Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks, Where’d you go Bernadette by Maria Semple, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall and Sh*t My Dad Says and I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern, Three Good Things by Wendy Francis, and Mistaken Identity by Dan & Susie Van Ryan, Colleen Newell, Whitney Cerak and Mark Tabb. I just started reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I’m addicted to getting lost in a good book!

I'm only up to four books this year (wow, that's sad. Clearly my knitting is doing better than my reading this year). I think my numbers are down because I have quit my kindle. When I realized my son thought I was playing video games rather than reading I went back to real books. I'm actually loving the switch but am not as good about remembering to pack my books. My ipod (with kindle app) was always in my bag so it offered more opportunity. I could also read and knit at the same time if I used the ipad, so more reading was accomplished then. Gone Girl is on my list soon. I thoroughly enjoyed The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman and I haven't cried over a book that hard in ages. I deals a lot with miscarriages and still births and losing children so it's a tricky one to recommend because I have been there and know so many women who have. Great book, but one that can hit a little too close to home. Thanks for the bit of inspiration. Must go read now....
