I am committed to reading these books this year because someone thought I should:
An Unlikely Angel by Ashley Smith – from my neighbor K.
Radio Shangri-La by Lisa Napoli – from Nancy
Fire Season by Philip Connors – from Nancy
Nemesis by Peter Evans – from Madeline – by the way, if you are reading this, Miss Mad – I promise Oscar and I’ll be back to visit you next week. Tell ya all about it later….
Martha, inc. by Christopher Byron – also from Madeline
Two Rivers by T.Greenwood – from Holly
Emotional Geology by Linda Gillard – WON in a giveaway, recommended by Rhapsody-Jill, I think
A Theory of Relativity by Jacquelyn Mitchard – another from Holly
Me and Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter – again, from Holly
Save the Cat! by Blake Snyder – WON in a giveaway by Trisha
Film School by Neil Landau with Matthew Frederick – I think I won this from Trisha
Moby Dick by Herman Melville – from my Father-in-Law
Please ignore the books on top. I didn’t want to cut them out of the photo. Copley the Lobster is a good book shelf accoutrement, dontcha think? He’s giggling because he thinks I do not know about his secret life. But I’ve already read that book. (It’s VERY good, too.)
I will be reading Cloud Atlas in March and I abandoned Cranford last year but vow to get back to it.
I’m most excited about starting the two from Nancy, especially Fire Season, and then Emotional Geology. I know I have a few from Holly coming soon; I gave her The Night Circus for her birthday in December and now my book club has chosen it so I need it back. She assures me that she just started it and will have it read by the weekend. She’s a great friend. She also insists I read Angels and Insects by A.S.Byatt. I must oblige.
As I double check my bookcase for any I missed, I do see Lobotomy by that Ree loaned me, I think, I hope. And I have a few other winnings – like the PIE book from Trish. Probably more. 🙂
AND! If YOU have sent me a book that is not listed here, please please administer the admonishments! Let me know. Thanks.
