Not Really Reading

I haven’t really been reading any books lately.  I tried to start reading the first Twilight book, but Peanut wasn’t too happy with that.  As soon as he saw the book he told me to go back to the closet and put the book back on the shelf.  I gave in since it was pretty late, and he was ready to go to bed already.  I don’t know if it counts, but I have been reading a lot of knitting magazines and books.  Also, I have been reading knitting blogs.  Hmmm… I don’t think this counts.

Some Really Good Reads

I think I have been keeping a record of the books I read since 2006 or so.  Of course I read books in high school, but I don’t they count as books that I chose to read.  Most of them were either mandatory reads or were selections from list of books I had to choose from.  I think the best book I read in high school was Jane Austen’s Persuasion.  wish I could read it again, but the local library doesn’t have a copy!  They have 6 copies of Pride and Prejudice, but no Persuasion. 

Here is a list of books that I have read so far:

 The 5 People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter  – Kim Edwards

Vittorio the Vampire – Anne Rice

Cranberry Queen – Kathleen DeMarco

Gulliver’s Travels – Jonathan Swift

Nest of Sparrows – Deborah Raney

The Stand – Stephen King

The Shop on Blossom Street – Debbie Macomber

Twilight Series- Stephenie Meyer

  • Twilight
  • New Moon
  • Eclipse
  • Breaking Dawn
  • Midnight Sun (Partial Draft)

Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë

Desperation – Stephen King

Velocity – Dean Koontz

The Other Boleyn Girl – Philippa Gregory

I have sold many of these books to Half Price Books.  I still have the Twilight books, but the rest were either from the library, sold, or borrowed.  Right now I have a collection of books that Lloyd has past on to me.  I guess I should list those, too.  🙂

Stephen King Books : Four Past Midnight, Misery, The Dawning of the Three

The Killing Hour – Lisa Gardner

Hidden Jewel – V.C. Andrews

The Constant Gardener- John Le Carré
