Reading List

(A Few Quick Notes Before We Get Started)

First on the page (as you scroll down a little) is the current book I’m reading…I’m working on adding that to the left hand column so you can see it from the main page, but we’ll see how that goes…Then is the stuff I’ve already finished…it’ll be cataloged by year and in pretty much the order I read stuff…I try to write reviews on pretty much everything I read, if the title is a link then, that’ll take you to my review, if it’s not a link…that’s because I didn’t write a review on it (some of the ’08 books, I read before I began this blog, that’s why there aren’t reviews on them, I try to write them while the book is fresh in mind)…If you get an Error Message when you click on the link, that’s because the review hasn’t actually been published’s scheduled for a future date, so, just keep checking back…I also try to give a star rating on it, so at a quick glance you can see what I thought…Textbooks are exempt from all reviews…any review of them would be biased as they are required reading…it’s hard to be objective when you’re being forced to read and analyze every little word in the book…Also, you can click the category to your right titled  “Book Reviews” and that’ll give you a snapshot of all the reviews I’ve written…So, without further ado…

Just thought maybe you’d like to read Gabriel Garcia-Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂

I have actually read it, and enjoyed it very much! I did read it in Spanish though, I think i may have to go back and read the English translation, I would probably enjoy that much better!

What about Milan Kundera’s Unbearable Lightness of Being? Or Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate or Swift as Desire…
John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath?
anyway, enough already. lol.

Like Water For Chocolate I own, but haven’t gotten to yet, Grapes of Wrath I’ve read twice…I personally think it’s highly overrated..but that could be because I was forced to read it twice…and I’ll have to check out Unbearable Lightness of Being…I have a very very long list of books I’d like to read…unfortuantly, only so many hours in the day.

my two cents: find a copy of She’s Come Undone, by Wally Lamb. it’s a great “girl who was treated like crap takes control of her life” kind of book. and you wouldn’t even know it was written by a man. i’ve read it a couple of times, and it’s excellent.

I suggest you read the alchemist by Paulo Coelho if you haven’t read it yet. It’s a great book that inspires many people 😛 . Or so I think of it :)) .

I’ll have to check that out. I’ve heard that one from several people.
