Books I read in 2010

Yet again I have failed miserably in my quest to read a book a week (on average). You know…like I did pre-children!

My favorites:
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: Potentially life changing autobiographical memoir by Don Miller. Don decides that he wants to have a good “story” to tell about his life. And it makes me want me change my life story to be great.

What Strength Remains:Fantastic biography of an amazing genoicide survivor from Burundi and his journey to the United States. And back to Burundi. Inspiring and amazing.

The Art of Racing in the Rain: Sad and pensive fiction about a Northwest man surviving the loss of his wife and the battle to get custody of his daughter. All narrated by the family dog.

Outliers: I learned so much from this book!

Catching Fire: Awesome 2nd book in the triology The Hunger Games (although not as good as the first)

  1. I find it interesting that you summarized “The Art of Racing in the Rain” without mentioning the dog.

  2. oops! I had that in at first, doubted myself (it’s been a while since I read the book), and then deleted it. I put it back in Jen!

  3. I loved Outliers as well and the 5th Harry Potter is by far my favorite! You did a lot of reading lady!

  4. I promised myself that I would try to read a narrative book a month last year. I read so much for work and failed miserably with my goal too.
    So far this year I have read two books ( Plain Truth by Jodie Picoult and Breathless by Dean Koontz) which is a very good start. Thanks for the motivation to keep going. I will check out the books on your list.

  5. It’s really nice to have the internet as a medium where we can share our thoughts, I love these stories too, all the climax, they are like a genuine pills that heals your curiousity of being a book worm.

  6. Our book club had a VERY interesting discussion about racing in the rain–you could definitely tell who loved dogs!

  7. wow wow and wow!!! I wish I could / would read again! I read to my kids – but I don’t think this counts!

    Happy New Year!

  8. You are the first person in awhile who I “know” who has read Gregor the Overlander. What did you think? My husband and I read the entire series (Gregor, and the Harry Potter books are the only books he and I have both read-our tastes and love of reading are different ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  9. I do want to read Outliers. I’ve heard so much about that book!

  10. “How Children Raise Parents” sounds like an interesting read ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy reading in 2011– You sure got through a lot of books in 2010!

    Cheers, jj
