Reading List

What are you all reading these days? I just finished The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb. It is long, and complex, but I ultimately found it worthwhile.

I decided to choose a lighter read for my next book - Ask Again Later, by Jill Davis. My nightstand has a stack of unread books, waiting for me. The Help, by Kathryn Stockett, is up next. And I want to give The Poisonwood Bible another chance. Everyone I know loved it, and I never managed to finish it.

What's on your nightstand?


  1. Anonymous8.2.10

    Aside from the kids books I love to read (Lightning Thief, Ranger's Apprentice, 100 Cupboards, etc.), and the teen series starting with Here There Be Dragons, I loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, set after WWII on the Island of Guernsey off England. Great characters, interesting format. I do hear The Help is very good. Elinor

  2. Kittymac9.2.10

    I just finished Andre Agassi's autobiography "Open." It was fascinating and I thought well written, as if he was just sitting there telling you about himself. Even people not really into tennis would like it I think. Just started a book I'll be doing with my study group: "The Rhythm of Life: Living every day with Passion and Purpose" by Matthew Kelly. It's already gotten my attention & is making me evaluate what I want.

  3. Thanks you guys! Elinor, I've heard of the Guernsey book and may have to check that one out. Thanks!

  4. The Help was fantastic! Just rereading some Salinger books now...I think they were more appealing in the midst of my teen angst days though :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I really love hearing from the people who read this little blog of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
