book sale haul

This is a recent haul from a buck-a-bag sale at a local church shop.
God bless 'em.

So, folks, this year I'm turning the big three-oh. thirty. And I have this little thirty before thirty list. (I'll tell you more about it soon.) But one thing on there is read thirty books. Which really shouldn't be too hard for me.

I inhale books.

I ell-oh-vee-ee, love, to read.

I just don't always have the time. I don't always make the time... So one end of this challenge is to: make. time.

The other end is: I want people to tell me what to read.

I'm not picking. I want people to tell me what book I just have to read. That book they've read ten times. The one they think everyone should read? twice? That one.

The other people are you. ( wait, does anyone even read this blog anymore?)

If you do, still read here, I'd love to hear your suggestion. I'd really appreciate it. truly. I'm going to keep a running list on the sidebar there on the right.

I really can't wait to hear which books you love!

My favourite classic book is Pride & Prejudice.

The one I just finished reading is Lost Girls.

Ones I could read over and over, anything by Miss Read.

Totally ridiculous but hilarious too? Shopaholic series.

Have fun reading!

Anything by Dickens - seriously! - I love Dickens...I just finished Cutting for Stone and loved it so much - then we followed that up by watching A Walk to Beautiful...

*A Prayer for Owen Meany (John Irving)
*The Source (James Michener)
*Anything by Jodi Picoult
*Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman
*The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon

Now I'm thinking I should do a "35 before 35" list!

I've read A Separate Peace a loooong time ago and really liked it. I'm not much of a fiction reader, so I'm really no help. =( Happy big three-oh. This will be my 30 year too. We have something to celebrate together. Huzzah!

Don't Tell Mom I work on the Rigs: She thinks I'm a Piano player By Paul Carter.. It's a bit macho but if you like exploding monkeys (who doesn't) this a funny book!
