We grew up without a television, so as a child my 3 siblings and I did a lot of reading. Yeah, we were real rebels- we read with a flashlight under the covers before it was cool. The other day on Twitter I noticed a conversation about "Book-It." Remember the Book-It program?
children where you received a star sticker for every book you read. Every so many stars on your pin (shown above) would get you a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut for free. Anyways, that memory made me smile..
I definitely don't read as much as I want to anymore, I guess I can't motivate myself? I have a growing pile.list of books to read, starting with this month's bookclub pick, Wildflower Hill, by Kimberley Freeman, which I hope to start before this weekend.
I don't have an all-time favorite list, but here are some recent favorites:
The Help, Katheryn Stockett
One for the Money, Janey Evanovich (soon to be a movie staring Katheryn Heigl!)
Then Came You, Jennifer Weiner
Wow, I'm shocked and embarassed that there's not more. I had been reading not-so-interesting books like The Triple Bottom Line, Play Like a Man-Win Like a Woman, and other books for school, so I guess I took a break!
Here are a few on my list to read:
A Reliable Wife, Robert Goolrick
Heart of the Matter, Emily Griffin
Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen
Teresa of Teresa-Life and Style and I have been talking about a bloggers book club, anyone interested? We're planning on starting with Water for Elephants! Contact Teresa or myself for more deets!
