wfpoppet Didn't make my goal this year, which bugs the heck out of the competitive side of me. Considering some of the life curveballs that took over my reading time, though, I'm quite pleased with 65. ☺

I adore the Unfortunate Events series. I think there's such a sly cleverness about - definitely dry chuckles. And, would you believe that this was my first time reading Charlotte's Web? I watched the movie countless times as a child but never read the book. I'm realizing there are a lot of titles like that!

Thanks! I like to think so. :-)

When I first signed up for GR, I refused to include any of the books I read for school - this was supposed to be my reading escape. However, after devoting most of my time for reading in Feb to thesis research, I figured I'd worked hard to read those suckers, so I might as well give myself some credit!

wfpoppet Cary, I enjoyed it. It's shelved in the teen section of my library. After reading several research texts relating to the subject recently, I just wanted to take a bit of a break and read an account from someone who had actually experienced it. The book does focus more on his time in the US post-resettlement, but it's interesting to see how he adjusted to the cultural differences. A quick, easy read. :-)

Cary (Vortigern) | 344 comments #8 Looks like a really good book. Personally history and true life expeireiences are my favorite reads. Even though I read lots of Scifi Fantasy.
