Book Talk

I love books.

I love reading books and writing books.  I love buying books for myself and for other people.  I love getting books as gifts.

As far as I'm concerned, there are few things as lovely as a stack of books you can't wait to read.  What worlds await?  What characters will there be to get to know?  What experiences will there be to imagine yourself in?

The only hard part is deciding what to read first, because I never have as much time to read as I'd like!

My current stack includes What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen (I love Sarah Dessen), The A Circuit by Georgina Bloomberg and Catherine Hapka (I love books about horses), Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks (I loved A Year Down Yonder and if you haven't read it I highly recommend it), Secret Of The Night Ponies by Joan Harlow (never read anything by her before), and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (which has gotten great reviews.)

What great books have you read recently, and what's in your to-read stack now?  Please share!

  1. I'm so with you on this. My kids have so many books, yet every time I go to a garage sale, I buy more. I recently found a copy of "Stand Back Said The Elephant, I'm Going To Sneeze" which was a childhood favorite.

    I also try to give books for birthday gifts.

    I have a whole stack of adult and YA paranormal books waiting for me. I tried to forbid myself from buying new books until my Gonna Read pile was depleted, but it didn't work. :-)

  3. I'm with you - I love books!

    I read Before I Fall and it was everything everyone says. I can't wait to hear your opinion. I have a stack of MG books to get to - Reckless by Cornelia Funke, Savvy by Ingrid Law, the first Septimus Heap book (ack! the author's name escapes me)...

    Happy Reading!

  4. Oh, Savvy sounds good, too! And my son loved Septimus Heap!
