I've been on a reading frenzy. I'm not sure I can list all the books I'm currently reading ... yes I said "books" as in plural. On my nightstand is a book called Nothing. It's a non-fiction, which is a shocker that I'm reading it. I don't care for much non-fiction. I figure that I live non-fiction so I'd rather read fiction. I don't know if that makes much sense but it is how I feel. I need more creativity usually but this book is very interesting. It's about a girl growing up with no organizational religion. Really really interesting.
On my IPod I am listening to The Septembers of Shiraz by Dalia Sofer... I'd give it a thumb up at this point. It's about the aftermath of the Iranian revolution where a rare-gem dealer is arrested, wrongly accused of being a spy. It's very interesting and different.
My book on the ottoman downstairs is The Lost Symbol. That's where I read when I don't want to fall asleep. I have wanted to read this for a long time and my friend gave me her copy and keeps wanting to talk about it and I haven't read it yet so I've got to get busy! I have enjoyed the first two chapters.
Why do I tell you this? Glad you asked... I tell you to keep me going. If I put it out there, it's out there and I have to abide or who knows what will happen. I also would like to say that for once, I only am reading one of these books because of the cover. I am a bad "reading the book because I like the cover" person. I might make that a group to join on facebook. It seems like a good one.
Keeping with that I am now going to post my summer reading list...Let's see how many I really get through...
1. The Girl who kicked the hornets nest - Steig Larson
2. Home Safe - Elizabeth Berg
3. The Forgotten Garden - Kate Morton
4. People of the Book - Geraldine Brooks
5. A Reliable Wife - Robert Goolrick
6. The Last Girls
7. The Story Sisters - Alice Hoffman
8. Those who save us - Jenna Blum
9. The Price of Salt - Claire Morgan
10. Walking Chi - Tai Chi in everyday walking
So there you have it. Keep me honest... keep me on this. If you've got a list... let us see it.
Good reading and good night
