An's Book Club

I'm stealing an idea from Claudia's blog. I'm going to start listing the books I've read on the right side of the page, and maybe writing a short book report. I wish I had thought to write down every book I've read since I was a kid. I bet the list would be huge, and it would feel like a great accomplishment to see that.

I remember there was a "Read-A-Thon" in elementary school to benefit some Multiple Sclerosis organization. I loved that thing. I think a lot of my neighbors were surprised at how many books I managed to read in a short timeframe. My mom had to make rules that I couldn't read anything too easy, in order to make it fair, especially for those folks who pledged a quarter or more per book. I had to write down all the books I read for that, but the form was turned in at the end of the event, so I don't even have that record.

In college, I didn't read for fun at all. I had way too much to read for school. After I started working, I found the public library wherever I lived because I can't go into a bookstore without buying *something*. Oddly, I don't have that many books at home that I haven't read. Eventually I get around to reading everything I've bought.

Anyway, here's to keeping a record from now on!


  1. Letting readers of your blog know what books you're reading clues them in to other aspects about yourself. It's a great idea.

  2. cool! now I'll have great ideas for new books to read. Conspicuously missing from my collection of books are good fiction books. I have some, but not that many.


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
