Reading for 2010

One of my GOALS for 2010 is to read more. I have started The Help by Katherine Stockett and it is great. I had 3 people tell me how wonderful it was and I am happy to report that they were right! Her character profiles are so well written that I feel like I know Minny, Abileen and Skeeter personally. The book takes place in the 60’s in Mississippi during a very critical time for race relations and brings these women together for a purpose, To tell their story. Love it!

Reading List for 2010:
I am going with a SOUTHERN THEME for my pleasure reading because, well I love the South and I love all things Southern.
Walking Across Egypt Clyde Edgerton
Before Women Had Wings Connie May Fowler
Bastard Out of Carolina Dorthy Allison
South of Broad Pat Conroy
*The Glass Castle Jeanette Wells AMAZING!! {AMAZING!}
The Ominvores Delimma Michael Pollen Watched the documentry FOOD INC. wow!
*Parenting by the Book John Roseman (love this man!) {great}
Bringing up Geeks Marybeth Hicks
Babywise  Gary Esso {best book ever on how to raise a baby}
South of Broad Pat Conroy (starting now)

And I/we read to Mr. Jack every night. I think I will share those as well. With a 2 almost and 1/2 year old we get stuck on certain books that are his favs.  Here is this weeks!

I will keep you updated on what I am reading and what I think about it!
Here’s to 2010 and reading more!!

    LOVE posts about books! I found you through SITS, and it’s too funny that I did, because “The Help” was featured on our library’s homepage and I’ve been meaning to check it out. :o) I love reading, and I’m currently doing “Eat, Pray, Love”…it’s definitely worthwhile!

    Have a lovely weekend, mama!
