Books Read

My friend does a list every Friday caled Grateful Friday, so I thought I’d do some sort of Friday List so I can have something to write on a regular basis. Did I mention that I am doing this blog so that I can print a blog book at the end of each year, and it will be a sort of family/me journal that includes pictures? Anyway, that is the hope. I just need one solid year of posts, so I am starting here in December as a soft start for my 2008 blog book.

Anyway- the lists on every Friday will be different, so today is:

  • I’ve read a lot of books this year too, the only one I’ve read on your list is “Nickle and Dimed” which I liked. I used to keep a book log/journal, but after awhile I forgot to write in it and now it’s just a lost cause.

  • This is impressive! I’ve started to read as much as possible, because I think that after two kids, I will be back to reading just… catalogs. So the fact you’ve read anything at all is a testament to your literacy and determination!
