How are you doing on your reading girl? I'm feeling accomplished this year starting off the way I did. SO FAR anyway. I want to read ALL the books on my list...AND I have a list by my computer of OTHER books I want to read as well...oh the joy....

Sara (saras99) | 15 comments Hi Pam - I have one done on my list. I have been reading other things. I have started the Hunchback of Neiman Marcus but didn't realize it is written like a poem the whole book. That one might be a struggle...How are you doing?

I'm on book number FOUR! I zoomed through the Twains and just finished Finn to add to Huck's story. That was AWESOME! I'm reading a chunky one right now...Winter of the World by Ken Follett...#2 of his Century Trilogy and it's AWESOME. I read #1 Fall of Giants last year and the only thing bad about this series is I'll have to wait for another 2 years to get the last one! If you haven't read any Follett you should. He is by far one of my favorite authors and you just can't put his books down. His The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End are AMAZING. You'll have to try them someday....good luck on that poem book...I hope it's a catchy one!

Jenni....I can't put it down. Winter of the World is freakin' AWESOME!!!!! Is it bad to say I'm glad Kateri is sick? I get to spend lots more time in the rocker with the nook and a cuddling baby. The house is suffering...but I'll take the baby and the nook over cleaning ANY day.....

Ummm no, I know what you mean! It's just well-timed enjoyment is all. :) She's getting the love she needs, and you're getting some well-deserved reading and chilling with baby time. :) It's a win-win! :)
