My reading quest

Nowadays on my Fridays off, instead of watching TV all day, I will go outside and lay in our hammock and read. It is quite relaxing, and a great way to unwind. Also when my friend Jamie is busy during lunch I get to read my book during lunch, which is also really nice.

There are 42 books I want to read, and I would like to read them this year. You may think it is impossible, seeing as how we only have 8 months left in the year, which would come out to be about 5 books a month. I think I can do it, but I am going to have to start borrowing them from the library, because this reading habit of mine is getting quite expensive.

I want to read all of Jodi Picoult’s books, as well as Nicolas Sparks. I know most of their books are similar in theme, but I really enjoy their style of writing. I also got a few other books from the NY Times bestsellers list, and Oprah’s book club. Here is my complete list:

1. The Time Traveler’s Wife- Audrey Niffenegger <- I have 30 pages left
2. Dear John- Nicolas Sparks
3. House Rules- Jodi Picoult
4. Bed of Roses- Nora Roberts
5. The lucky One- Nicolas Sparks
6. The Sun Also Rises- Earnest Hemingway
