Book It!

No, you don't get a button or free pizza with this one. *sigh* I miss elementary school.

Anyway, there's a blogger reading list for the year that I'm hopping onto. I got this one from Catie, who got it from Life as Mom (though I'm not entirely sure she was the originator of this particular list). But the titles sound interesting, so I'm in! Here's the schedule with the "read by" dates, in case you'd also like to join.

Just don't request them from my library, yo. The queue is already too long.

Some others I'm including that I plan to read this year:

I'd list a few more, but that Washington book is going to be a doozy. It's crazy long and crazy dense. Glad we own that one, or the library would own me!

Whether or not you join this reading list, do you have anything on your reading list this year?


  1. My resolution this year was to read everything by Maya Angelou possible :-) I'm already 3 books in!

  2. I love her! I thought about including Zora Neal Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, but I want to see if I've already bitten off more than I can chew. :)

  3. So, I went to my librarian yesterday and asked if she could search outside our library system for "The Happiness Project" - apparentely that's cheating. :( Oh well. I'm ONLY #29,837 on a list of 2,348,730,948. I should get it soon!

  4. Dude, that's crazy! Our library has digital downloads, but somehow I'm still 3rd in line for that. They can only have so many digital copies checked out? This makes no sense.

  5. I haven't read The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo yet... I may just pass on that one.
    I watched the Masterpiece Theater version of Mansfield Park if that counts :) I have heard that The Pilgrim's Progress is a must read... that one is on my list.
    I like this book list... it's very well-rounded. At this point I'm lucky if I can keep up with 2 Beth Moore studies though... maybe I'll wait until summer!


I wrote the thing. You read the thing. Don't be too lazy to comment!
