    Do economics text books fit in anywhere? Sadly, that is all I am reading these days...

    award winner, unlikely, or recomended by a celebrity at some point. (I i assume they don't mean personally?)

    I'll bite, since I'm trying to get back into reading. (And LOVE my new Kobo Glo!!)

    Currently reading a library book, which is also a book 'everyone' has read. I guess I shouldn't tick off multiple entries for the same book as that wouldn't be in the spirit of the game! I'm reading Shopaholic. It's infuriating.

    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    That list would take me 3 years to get through! If I read 6 books this year, that will be an improvement!

    I can't believe I just admitted that!

    How fun! I'm going to try.

    I picked up the Bingo yesterday Already got in the
    Library book, book with pictures, and book with animal on cover and books to help with career (creating a webpage to help with career and recommending how they could be used in a kindergarten lesson).

    Not sure where 39 clues would fit in - can that be Young Adult??? I bought 11 of them for DS for xmas for $40 and I'm on book 3 so I still have 8 more and then will have too order the rest from the library.

    And figure I should read 50 shades of grey, hopefully the waitlist is below 6 months now - which is a book everyone has read.

    Ha, I'm on the wait list for 50 Shades as well, something like 47th?!

    I'm halfway through the second Shopaholic book right now. I don't think I can take the third. Next on my list will be to tick off a book over 400 pages. (Her Fearful Symmetry)
