Reading

Sunday, March 28, 2010
I love to read.  Are you on Goodreads?  I had to join to keep track of books I want to read and love to see other people’s recommendations.  (I had to, keeping track of recommendations on scraps of paper, or potentially crashing pc, wasn’t working for me anymore!)  Join me there if you like, would love to chat up favorite books with you.
Why am I blogging about this? Because I took up my entire Sunday afternoon starting and finishing a great book – wanted to share it with you.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  I gave it 5 stars and read it all in one afternoon.  I just thought it was very compelling and an emotional story.  I’ll have to see if there’s a book 2 now.

That’s why I didn’t get any crafting done.  Have fabric cut out and some bunnies I wanted to stitch… maybe for next spring…  Missed out on posting a project I wanted to share at Craft Schooling Sunday – but you should see who’s linked to it, pretty nice projects so far. 
I’ll be back in a few days, at the latest by Thursday for an Artful Thursday project, maybe sooner.  Happy Passover to everyone who celebrates!

  1. Reading is great. I need to do more than I have been again these last few months. I have a few books that I have started, that need finished. The last one I read in full was called "The Kommandant's Daughter" and it was a FABULOUS book!

  2. This site sounds interesting! I will have to check it out. I do love to read and am in a book club. I usually only get to read that one book a month. However, because I listen on audio, I get to "read" a few more books per month.

  3. I really enjoy reading lots but didn't have much time to do that lately. So im a little slow in reading. Thanks so much for sharing Goodreads! Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

  4. My kids' various reading obsessions have made me rediscover classics like THE MIXED UP FILES OF MRS. BASIL E. FRANKWEILER (Kronigsburg, I think) and anything Encyclopedia Brown (Sobol). We recently finished all the Kate DiCamillo (sp?) books like THE TALE OF DESPERAUX (so different from the movie, by the way). We're about the start THE UNFINISHED ANGEL. If it weren't for my kids, I wouldn't have time to read at all. Thank goodness for them!

  5. Reading is one of my passions. I just don't find lots of folks who like the same books that I do - so the internet is great for that. And kids books are so much fun - the colors, the imagination. Now that my teens are older I'm reading a bunch of "young adult" novels, making sure they're "appropriate" & really have liked many of them.
