.books.

this summer i plan on getting back into the habit of reading 1 or more books a month.  So far this month i have read 2 and am hoping to get at least 2 more in.  My summer course loads are going to be heavy in reading as i am take 3 classes all having to do with research and children’s lit but i hope to still do my own reading on the side.

my recent reads have been

Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger
are you there vodka? it’s me chelsea by chelsea handler
la candy by lauren conrad
as you can see i have moved fully in to beach reading mode.

as for my to read list:

1. girl with the dragon tattoo by stieg larsson
both amc and mr. match are reading this and i feel left out/was going to steal mr. matches but he is going to slow

2. tipping point by malcom gladwell
i have been “reading” this for 3 years now.  i just go a chapter or so at a time.  it’s intresting but i get sidetracked from it easily.

3. the carrie diaries by Candace Bushnell
AMC pre-ordered this and we are going to have book club about it.  EVERYONE is welcome maybe i will blog as i read it!!

4.the help by kathryn stockett
i am actually going to listen to this on tape when i drive to see ajh on thursday!  it will make the 10 hour trip SOOO much better!

5. the devil in the white city by erik larson
its about my fav place chicago and a murder at the worlds fair.  i hope to read it over fourth of july when i am in for a wedding and a week of play at the lake!

6./7. my horizontal life and chelsea chelsea bang bang by chelsea handler
do i even need to tell you why these made my list… i think i will wait to read then so i can just steal AMCs copies and read them both while at her house this summer…
