Who Knew Such a Joyous Thing Existed?

Thanks to BooMama for joining this so I can too!

Click here since I can't make the button work....

I think my reading challenge is going to be to get through all the books I've started, PLUS the ones for my book group. So, that gives me:

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

The Price of Admission by Daniel Golden

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan

The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

Playful Parenting by Lawrence J. Cohen

Between Parent and Child by Dr. Haim Ginnot

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Excellence Without A Soul: How a Great University Forgot Education by Harry R. Lewis

My Life with the Saints by James Martin

Three Martini Playdate: A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting by Christie Mellor

A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach

Can I do it by December? I don't know! But it is certainly worth a try. Anyone else want to play along?



I hope that you blog about "Playful Parenting."

Three Martini Playdate is a quick and hilarious read, if you want to put one in the "finished" pile!

I haven't read any of these, but there are several that I'll probably get around to eventually -- like The Memory Keeper's Daughter. I'm glad you came across the challenge and decided to join in!

Great list! Simple Abundance is daily readings. That means you read one a day which would take you all year.

Love the title: Three Martini Playdate! Happy reading!

Your first two books I absolutely loved! They are on my highly recommend list. Happy Reading.

Thanks for all the comments! Fortunately I have been reading Simple Abundance since about May, so while I technically will not be "done" by Dec. 21, if I'm on Dec. 21's reading by Dec. 21, I'm going to "count" it. And I'm backreading the months I "missed" and I'm up to March, so it feels do-able.
Almost done one book! Going offline now to see if I can finish!

I'm interested in so many titles on your list! Hope you write reviews of them.
