Kelsey LaPort | 7 comments I use to organize two book clubs but found I couldn't fit them into my busy schedule anymore. I just graduated and FINALLY have time to read what I want.

Here is what I have so far...

1) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
2) Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
3) The Year of Endless Sorrows by Adam Rapp
4) Run by Ann Patchett
5)The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

I have a 2 hour commute, twice a day so 50 books in a year should hopefully be doable.

Look forward to seeing what everyone is reading!

KrisT What did you think of Shadow of the Wind? I just loved that book and was really surprised by how much too.

Kelsey LaPort | 7 comments I've been meaning to read Shadow of the Wind for years now. It was so enjoyable to read. Like The Da Vinci Code meets Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

It took a little while to get into, but so worth it. Russo is amazing.

Meg (megvt) | 691 comments I thought this book was fantastic. I love Richard Russo. Once into it, didn't you find it hard to put down?
