A goal that I have for myself for 2007 is to read more. I spend a lot of time watching TV so I am going to try to turn off the TV and just read. So far so good. Thankfully I am in a book club so that helps me read at least a book a month. So far in the last month (December to now) I have read 3.5 books. He See’s You When You’re Sleeping by Mary Higgins Clark was my pick for December; The Dive From Clausen’s Pier by Ann Packer was suggested by a friend; Good Grief by Lolly Winston is January’s book club pick, I have already finished it; Aquamarine and Indigo by Alice Hoffman is the book I am currently reading. I think the focus for that is the preteen age frame so it is a nice light read after what I have just finished reading. Alice Hoffman was suggested by a friend and this was the first book that I found by her at Half Price books. I like to buy my books rather than check them out at the library. Then I don’t have to worry if I dog ear the pages or not! Half Price is the way to go if I don’t get the book from a friend. My friend Erin just gave me 2 books and was the one who suggested Lolly Winston and Alice Hoffman. She had just given me Good Grief and then it was picked for January book club! She said she used to read a book a week! I would love to read the Janet Evonovich books but I have heard that when you start with 1, you are going to want to read them all.
I plan to keep track of the books I read on my blog. Sorry if I ramble on too much. If you ever want to borrow any books after I read them, let me know. I am not a person to reread books so if you pass them on, it is no big deal.
