I have tried sitting down and writing something at least 3 times so far but I keep getting pulled away for one thing or the other. I have been reading everyone else's blog post each day and getting so many crafty, quilty, and decorating ideas and seeing so many pretty things but I haven't found time to write anything myself in the past week.
Yesterday I was reading The Nester @ The Nesting Place who wrote about the books she's read for 2011. I warned her I might have to steal her idea and so here I am. Be sure to click on The Nester and see what books she's read or reading plus what some of her followers are reading.
I haven't done a very good job in 2011 reading or keeping up with what I've read. Normally when I finish them I list them on my GoodReads account but I have been a little busy.
I try to keep track of the books I read, want to read and currently reading on GoodReads.
But here is what I know I've read for 2011 for sure.
|One Thousand White Women:Maria Dodd Journal||Jim Fergus|
|The Wednesday Letters||Jason F. Wright|
|The Immortial Life of Henriette Lacks||Rebecca Skloot|
|The Help||Kathryn Stockett|
|I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive||Steve Earle|
|Lost in Shagri-La||Mitchell Zuckof|
I know I've read a couple of books in between the ones above but I'll be darn if I can remember the names now. Again it's hell getting old.
A few of my favorite books I've read over the last 4 years
Pillars of the Earth Ken Follett
A Thread of Grace Mary Doria Russell
Same Kind of Different as Me Ron Hall, Denver Moore, Lynn Vincent
The Last Lecture Randy Pausch
The Traveller John Twelve Hawks
(4th Realm Triology series. It may be SCI-FI but it sounds like today. Read all 3 books now)
Rain of Gold Victor Villasenor
Books on my "To Read" List
The Hunger Game Series
The Captains Wife
and maybe another SciFi just not sure which one since it's not something I tend to read.
What books have you read this year and which are your favorites?
