More Presents!

My Mom gave me the two charts above (she also said she wants to stitch them too!)
I got lots of great, great, great books!!!!!!!!!!



I finished the John Lennon book. It was very sad. So mad that he was killed. I think they could have picked a more attractive cover though. I am now reading The Emperor of All Maladies which is a history of cancer. I like to read books with a medical theme. Can't wait to dive into the Fannie Flagg for lots of fun. My nephew got me the Cleopatra book! I saw the author on The Daily Show and she was so interesting!! The Where Women Create book speaks for itself now doesn't it???

I am going to be going through my date book tonight. That is where I write down each book I have read in 2010....I need to post my Best Books of 2010 tomorrow!!!! I would love to know what the best books you read in the last year were.

Wonderful presents! I love books! Books books books! The Cleopatra one sounds interesting. All of those are interesting looking actually. I love Lennon and the Beatles. There have been some great reads -- The Help, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, the Kitchen House, -- Oh gosh, too many to name.

All of these sound so good! I really want to read the Lennon and Cleopatra particularly.

I'm currently reading "Look Me In the Eye." About Asperger's. Very good so far.
