Let's Be Friends!

Here is my pile of books. I'm stressed! So many books, so little time! I love the public library, I really do, but sometimes the timing of my holds is less than perfect. Only three weeks to get through all of these? Impossible! And where do I start?

I'm actually quite excited to read a few of these books, especially:
-The Hour I First Believed, the newest Wally Lamb book
-My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult, which my mom bought me
-Paris to the Moon, by Adam Gopnik, which was part of my birthday present from M.
-and Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon, just because I want to know what the hype is all about

I am also attending my first Book Club meeting this week about the book Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan, and I'm only on page 50 of 300! Eek! I gotta go read!

Okay, but the real reason for this post was to tell you about the Goodreads website. This is a website to track the books you've read, get recommendations from friends (pretty hard when you don't have any), read reviews, rate books, etc. I always wanted a way to keep track of the books I read, and this is perfect! It's really easy to sign up. Come on, let's be friends. Please? Don't let my mother be my only friend!


  1. I'm glad that you joined a book club.... I hope they don't kick you out at the first meeting for not having the book read....lol
    I have three more Jodi Picoult books for you to read.... Happy Reading!!!

  2. read lots now--i used to read tons, starting with the whole little house on the prarie series. once my sons arrived i read constantly to them, esp second son and he loves to read now. then i got in the habit of reading readers digest and magazines. time to get back to a bookstore!...aunt lena

  3. I think I will join the GoodRead..... have fun reading...... Grandma J

  4. I would join Jill - if I ever read a book again :) I have had one book on the go for 6 months - An Unfinished Life - and so far its still an unfinished book

  5. Have you started My Sister's Keeper? I want to read it too!

  6. I haven't started My Sister's Keeper quite yet! I have to get through some library books first, then I can move on to it. I'm excited for it! Would you like to borrow it in the meantime?
