It's About Tme

Speaking of year end lists, I was thinking about what I've read this year and I'm sad to say it's not much. I don't mean the content was bad, I mean it's a pitifully short list that I'm not proud of. It made me think about the books I've been meaning to read for years. I'd say the book I most hang my head in shame about having never read is Little Women. I know! Someone gave me a copy when I was around 10 years old but I could never get into it. I've decided it's finally time to knock that one off my "To Read" list. My buddy Shandon and I spoke about doing a book-of-shame swap. By this I mean that I agreed to read Little Women and she said she'd give her book of shame a shot. (I'll let her tell you what that book is.)

Here are the books I'd like to finally read in 2010:
Sort of a weird list, huh? I can't help it. These are the books I've always meant to read but never have. Dammit, it's time!

Here are the books I'm thinking about re-reading in 2010:

What books have you always intended to read? Will you finally read one this year?

I shamefully hang my head and admit that I have never read Little Women either. Sigh! But, I read all of the Little House books and have "suggested" that my children do, too. And The Secret Garden has always been one of my favorites! Checked that one out from the library in elementary school and was totally immersed in it!

Maybe you would like to add Veronika Decides To Die. Makes people see beyond what's obvious in things and life.
