The year's half over..
Didn't summer just start?
Where has all the time gone..sigh.
Not that anyone cares, but I like to take stock occasionally, either to feel good about, or worse about how much time I've been reading instead of cleaning my house..
Book totals so far this year:
35 finished - including:
2 Young Adult
5 are what I might call Romances which means, there may have been kissing..or other stuff..
1 book of Poetry by TS Elliot
1 Play by Tom Stoppard
1 Oprah Book Club pick , yesss, surprise, surprise..
And everything else would probably fall somewhere in with popular fiction, or where ever the wind was blowing me at the time.
My favorite so far?
Regular fiction - probably The Princess Bride. Hands down just as entertaining as the movie.
Nonfiction - I really enjoyed learning about Mary Todd Lincoln. She was a fascinating woman way ahead of her time. A fulfilling yet terribly sad life.
I'm in the middle of -
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver - totally loving this, dirty fingernails and all.
Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert (for bookclub)
Women and Authority: Re-emerging Mormon Feminism edited by Maxine Hanks. I'm reading this essay by essay over the summer
After these -
Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Team of Rivals by Doris Goodwin
Because my life isn't complicated enough. Apparently..
Anybody else want to share their favorites so far this year, please feel free. If not, then please go outside and soak up that stinking sun while it lasts! And turn the computer off for crying out loud!
