More books, pleasePosted: February 1, 2011
I’m in the process of crossing another item off my 101 in 1001 list: start or join a book club. The law school wives’ club has a book group next week; we’re discussing Sundays at Tiffany’s. I read it the other night (it was…well, I’ll do a review after I go to the group) and now I’m ready for something new.
In my “spare time” (that is the funniest thing I’ve said all year) I’m reading The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis, but it’s for a class. Which means it doesn’t count as being enjoyable.
Today I’ll go to the library and pick up How to Train Your Dragon – I was surprised that I actually liked the movie (especially since it played almost non-stop over Christmas break), and I’ve been on the waiting list to get a copy of the book. But I think that will be a fairly short read and lately I definitely need to have a book to distract me from the chaos of my life.
That’s where you come in. I know I ask this every few months; please speak up. Do you have a book suggestion? Here are some I’m considering at the moment:
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
The Named by Marianne Curley
The Language of Things by Deyan Sudjic
Abhorsen by Garth Nix
