reading list


I saw this on a blog recently and thought it was such a great idea… I'd borrow it. Hope that's ok. It's a "what I'm reading" section on the sidebar. I love hearing about new books people are recommending. As I've said before, I love perusing the aisles of a good bookstore. But, it's become rather hard to find a cool bookstore anymore. I'm talking an independent shop, loaded with personality and quirky book folks. Barnes and Noble is fine and all, but it 'aint the same. Nashville has Davis Kidd which is pretty great. Their new location in the mall though, is super average compared to the gem they used to call home. Greenville on the other hand is very lacking. They have the big box stores, but I've yet to discover a local shop I like. Maybe I need to find a room like this…

crazy book room

I just finished reading The Help, which I wholeheartedly recommend. I wasn't that excited about it actually when mom loaned it to me. But, boy I couldn't put it down. I loved how each character had their own voice and switched back and fourth narrating the story. And the names were fabulous : Aibileen, Skeeter, Minny and Constantine.

Plus this will motivate me to continue picking up a new book instead of turning on the tv. Trevor will be reading text books and I shall be reading the sequel to The Glass Castle (if you've been living in a cave and haven't read this... you MUST get your behind out to the store and buy it up quick - it' that good!) : Half Broke Horses. And if ya feel like sharing a book recommendation, I would LOVE it. Happy reading friends.
