Books Books and More Book

Last summer I started a reading log. I wrote down each book I read, the date I finished the book, the who what when where, and any strong reactions I had to it. I wish I had started this much earlier. Now a year has gone by and it is so neat to see what books I read, where they took place and what I thought of them. I was also amazed that I read 25 books in one year! Here are the books I read last year:

While I enjoyed most of these books some definitely stand out as wonderful books. The Bonesetter's Daughter, Someone Knows My Name, The Shipping News, East of Eden, West with the Night, and Gone with the Wind.

Some books I'm looking forward to reading this fall are: A Light in August by William Faulkner, The Letters of John and Abigail Adams, Kiplings Lost World by Rudyard Kipling, Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis, Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter by Simone deBeauvoir, and Love the One You're With by Emily Griffin. What are you reading right now?

  1. So fun to see the pictoral list of the books you've read. I am one of the tribe that judges books by their covers, and you've read some beauties. :) Right now I'm reading & enjoying "Your Child's Heart" by Terry Glaspey (know him? :) and I just started re-reading "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers.
