What’s your top 5?
I read eat pray love. You could have done that better. Too bad you didn’t think of it first. And the movie preview looks AWFUL to me – whiny midlife lady crisis. You could have done that better too! 🙂
I loved The Time Traveler’s Wife and I’m reading Lovely Bones right now. I like books that are unique yet still under the banner of bestselling fiction…
for you I’d suggest some Dave Eggers and David Sedaris.
Hahaha! I thought EPL left a lot on the table and kicked myself for not doing it first!
Emily Giffin – Something Borrowed
Emily Giffin – Something Blue
Emily Giffin – Baby Proof
Erik Larson – Devil in the White City
Kathryn Stockett – The Help
*with as much as you read you should ask for a Kindle or Nook. A lot of public libraries work with the Nook so that you can check out books wirelessly for free from the comfort of your living room, or an airport, or a coffee shop, or… you get the idea.
I didn’t know that! MK said I could have a nook but I didn’t see the point already having the phone. It’s not like he’d let me PAY, but if the library works, that’d be great!
The screen on the nook is a lot easier on the eyes for heavy readers than a phone or computer. I looked up the Park City library, and yup, it works with netlibrary, which means you can check-out e-books.
Oh, and you can download the classics that are no longer copyright protected for free from Google books. (Kindle has proprietary format, so the e-libraries and google books don’t work on it).
This is embarrassing a bit, but I’ve read almost all the available classics that are free already. I’ve always seen those on google and project gutenberg. Thanks for checking the library for me, you’re adorable! Time to hit up the husband!
How was “The Girl that Played with Fire”? I’m looking for some books to read over the summer.
It’s the second book in the trilogy, you have to read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo first. Not sure if the third book is even out yet. I loved them and can’t wait to see the movie either, heard really good things about it.
