I’m reading Intensity right now, and fuuuuuu! I was reading what I’ll call the “Holy shit get out of there! I probably would not survive that.” part of the chapter. Normally, I don’t like slow books, but man does this book live up to it’s name. I’m well into the book, and it’s only been a few hours after the shit hit the fan for the main character. I’m definitely going to keep this one, and I haven’t even finished it. 4 weeks ago
I’ll be done with this goal the moment I’ve cleared my book shelf of all books I’ve acquired over the years. Some have been good, and some have been terrible. But I love to read, and being a future English major, it’s good to sit through terrible books so I know what NOT to do. :D 4 weeks ago
Finished reading the last of the donovan legacy series. Only took me a few hours. Probably wouldnt read again. All foyr books kinda of ran the same course. You guessed what was going to happen in the first chapter. Going to invest in an ereader of some description i think. Getting sick of the clutter that books make. 4 weeks ago
Being a student for so long, I had forgotten that reading is fun. Not that I hadn’t enjoyed the reading I did as a student, it was very interesting. But I’m looking forward to reading for me. Reading what I want, when I want.
I used to sit down and read a book in a week, sometimes a day. So this goal is to ease me back in. 4 weeks ago
Charmed by nora roberts. Not so keen on the donovan legacy series, but i have all four books. Now onto enchanted, the last of the series. 4 weeks ago
I’ve always wanted to read more, and what really got me going,(besides being unemployed) was reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. I never thought I’d love a classic novel so much, it really sparked an interest in me to read classic novels! Since November I’ve read: Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, The Mummy(Anne Rice), Wuthering Heights (Emily Brontë), Haunted (Chuck Palahniuk), The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Anne Brontë), The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald) and Låt den rätte komma in (John Ajvide Lindqvist) – in english it’s called Let the Right One In. Next on my list is Jane Austen’s Emma, Dracula and Catcher in the Rye. ^^ 2 months ago
Lat Night in Twisted River Done and delicious, but with an odd ending. I’ve just finished The World That Made New Orleans about cultural influences that made New Orleans so different from the rest of the south, most apparent in its native music. I may reread The Secret and my friend lent me Zeitoun by Dave Eggers. Let’s see if i can stay on track this month. 2 months ago
I started and finished Gibson’s “The Miracle Worker.” It was very moving.
And with that, I’m on track for an average of one book a month. 2 months ago

Yeah i know…i suck..oh well :-) 2 months ago
I read Rilke’s “Letters to a Young Poet.” Maybe I read it at the wrong time, but except for a few insightful or moving paragraphs (if that) here and there, slow-going and not very moving. Maybe I’ll give Rilke’s poetry a try at a later time. 2 months ago
Got kind of stalled. Bought Spreading the Wealth by Stanley Kurtz for my kindle and proceeded not to read it. Been reading a lot for class and since the legislature is in session, bills that are up for the various groups I’m involved in. Started listening to an audio book, The power of full engagement, about finding your focus and being more productive. 3 months ago
I read The New Yorker regularly, but hadn’t finished a book since December. When I read a great article about Nora Ephron in The New York Times, I found myself agreeing with her attitude towards life, and rushed out today to get her book “I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts About Being a Woman.”
Unfortunately, though this was a very quick read, I was not impressed. I was irritated by all her mentions of the expensive lifestyle she led, but even if she had not hinted at how many expensive products or services she used, I did not find the book overly amusing (though there were some laugh-out-loud moments) or enlightening (though there were some useful lessons or examples of how to live life). I’m not sure I would have liked it had I been a certain age (much older). At times, the book did inspire me to enjoy life (and my youth more), but at other times, it felt frivolous, and so like several of the ultimately disappointing books written by smart and funny women like Tina Fey and Mindy Kahling. Though it was well-written (I did have to look up some words and references, and the flow was good), this is not a book I would recommend. 3 months ago
isn’t going so well….I need more hours in the day and more days in the week…lol 3 months ago
James Lileks. Graveyard Shift
Nina Garcia. Little Black book of style.
A book about the competitive style of Job interviews.(currently reading a book about resumes).
A book about makeup (currently also reading 2 other books about makeup including Bobbi Brown’s manual)
I’ve decided that one serious book must be read to fulfill the goal and then I can read some “fun” books. 4 months ago
