Sometimes I just stare…
at my stacks and stacks of unread books. Why? Probably because I just haven’t had the time to read any of them! Actually, I did start The Memory Keeper’s Daughter yesterday. Into two chapters already and so far it has been pretty interesting.
I was drawn to Julie & Julia not only by the pretty book cover but also in the idea of this memoir. Julie decides to cook (in one year) all of the recipes in Julia Child’s legendary cookbook. Certainly an ambicous endeavor.
On the other hand, Bel Canto was handed to me by my neighbor Sheila. We are constantly sharing good books and she thinks that this would be one that I might enjoy. I have also noticed that many book bloggers are huge fans of Ann Patchett, so I figured I will give it a go.
A couple of the other books have been freebies from Bookmooch. If you haven’t tried out this book sharing website, I highly suggest that you check it out. So far I have
gotten rid of crappy books taking up space on my book shelf mailed out nine books, received three and have three more on their way. For only a couple bucks for each book sent (using media mail at the post office) I have gotten some great reading material (including Shadow of the Wind, which Maureen reviewed in September).
The question is, after I finish our book club pick, which one should I read next?
