Well, well.  I read more than a book a week-- there are 54 of those babies on that list!  That makes me really happy.  =)

I started at some point last year picking a book for fun (as in, not a study book at all) and a devotionally related book to read a chapter or so of every night.  I think that paid off.  If you have read any of these and would like to discuss 'em, let me know!  I'd be glad to do mini-reviews here for the ones you're interested in, dear readers, or just converse with you about them in some other place.  I'd also love suggestions of things you've read and liked. 

So many books... so little time!

    How was "Mr Darcy, Vampyre"? What are your thoughts on it?

    Amanda Smith Regier said...

    I've been trumped! Well done!

    LOVED the Borrowers. I think I'll have to read it again too.

    Also, I've been hearing good things about the Gargoyle. What's your review?

    jen, i thought it was pretty lame. not horrible, but nowhere near as good as 'p & p & zombies'.

    amanda, i had never read the borrowers til now. i love it! definitely a new favourite.

    as for the gargoyle, a friend gave it to me for christmas last year, and i. loved. it. i couldn't put it down, and wanted to start reading it again as soon as i'd finished. i loved it so much, i put it on our book club list this year, so i can read it and actually discuss it with people. if you read it, i'd love to hear what you think!
