A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.
Welcome back readers, all bleary-eyed & bushy-tailed from the holidays I take it :) I hope you all had a fabulous start to the New Year. I've enjoyed catching up on all the blogs I follow to see what books you received for the holidays and/or read during them. Today, I'm home from work (not much need for a substitute teacher on the first day back from the holidays!), I hope to hop through some new blogs & catch up on older ones through that handy dandy Google Dashboard ;)
I'm proud to say that I finished 3 books unexpectedly before New Year's Day, upping my 2010 total to 18 books read. Didn't think that would happen & it's making me realize how much time the holiday break allows for burying one's nose in a good book :) On that note, I've written an updated end-of-year post with some new stats.
Books Read Since My Break: (3)
The Poisonwood Bible- Barbara Kingsolver
Last Words- George Carlin
84 Charing Cross Road- Helene Hanff
Currently Reading: (2)
Full Dark, No Stars- Stephen King
I have read the first 2 short stories (loved both!), and have 2 left to read--for the Stephen King challenge.
My Life- Bill Clinton
I actually dipped into this on Dec. 31 after finishing 84 CCR & being too early to start the King book :D
Next to Read:
This Time Together- Carol Burnett--should be a sweet, breezy read for the What's in a Name 4 Challenge
Water For Elephants- Sara Gruen--has been "next to read" for a while now!
Atonement- Ian McEwan--ditto above!
Reviews Written Since Break:
None, hence the word "break" :D I have 4 newly finished books to review & still have some older previously read (what I call "retro read") books to post reviews for. I hope to have the 4 newer ones reviewed by next week & will (as usual) post the retro-read ones slowly but surely while reading my new books. Who knew there was strategy involved in book blogging? :D
Have a wonderful reading week!
