I finished The Adventures of Tom Sawyer...and now I'm on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. least 11 to go. BUT...I like my list I'm good. I have another "list" of books I want to read in addition to the ones on my official "LIST." HA! How is Butterfly going? I'll be calling you tomorrow morning. I keep running out in the mornings this week for stuff. I have a baby shower to shop for and now I think I'm done for that...groceries...still need some of those...but tomorrow morning...I'll call. AND YES we need to make our morning talks at LEAST a weekly thing! MISS YOU..........I hope Cole gets to wrestle in Carroll tomorrow but he's injured. SO....we'll see. I told Dean if he's there we'll be there for sure.....

Ohhh, I've only read two off of this list, but they all look great. I'm planning to read (listen to) Gone Girl soon. When do you plan to read Gone Girl?

Hey Jen...did you know that Dawn went to the inauguration??? Yeah....she's a rockstar! Hopefully she's gotten some reading done while there. I'm reading Finn right now...and I can't decide if I like it or not. The writing can be a bit confusing...a mix of the past and present and not a great transition between the two. But...I love the whole concept of the subject. I have around 100 pages to go. Then I'm dying to get books at once. Cloud Atlas keeps whispering to me but I have others I want to tackle first....OH....THE CHOICES.....the JOY.....

Wow, that is soooo cool! I hope that Dawn had a great time, and she'd better report back to us! :)

I would also like to read Cloud Atlas... but I have the same problem as you right now. So many good books, not enough time...

Hey are you doing on your list? I just finished my 12 books today!!! YAY!!! I'm going to try to get them all done though. Doing some fluff reading and then on to Cloud Atlas I think for me.
