#14 - read five books for fun

Jodi McKee3 Comments

well number five sure was easy. i'm not quite three months in to the list and i've already read six books for fun. i do love to read, i just don't always make enough time for it. having it on the list is definitely good motivation. so is easy access to my public library!

books read so far:

1. one year off by david elliot cohen. a re-read, actually, but it had been quite a while since i read it last. loved it just as much the second time. it's a real life account of the author, his wife, their nanny & their three children on a one year trip around the world. wanderlust much?

2. the first annual grand prairie rabbit festival by ken wheaton. a story about a young catholic priest in rural louisiana who holds a festival at the church. MUCH funnier and more interesting that it sounds. a great read.

3. the lost symbol by dan brown. the latest installment of the adventures of robert langdon. i still like angels & demons best, but if you are a fan of that or the davinci code, then you'll enjoy this story set in washington, d.c.

4. unclutter your life in one week by erin rooney doland. a great, practical guide to get you started on getting rid of the clutter in your home and at work. i read it once quickly, just to get the general idea. i plan on going back and really going through each chapter thoroughly. an encouraging read.

5. my life in france by julia child with alex prud'homme. i absolutely loved it. i will probably end up buying a copy, so i can re-read it. and i know i would have loved it, even if i hadn't just watched julie & julia, but the movie is what made me aware of the book in the first place.

6. the catcher in the rye by j.d. salinger. somehow, i never read this in high school. oh, how i wish i had! it was a little slow for me at the beginning, and it took a while to get used to the language style, but in the end, i really, really liked it. i can see how it would make a huge impact for younger people.

i'm sure i will be adding to this list as the year goes on, but for now, check off number fourteen!
