I haven't done much reading in the past couple of months and they just seem to be piling up!!! I actually have a few others that I still have yet to read, but my 'to read' shelf got too full so I had to put them into the bookshelf. Isn't that horrible!!! I even returned my library book without finishing it. It will still be there in 10 years when I get caught up!

Please tell me I'm not the only one with a mile long list of books to read? What are you reading right now? Do you know what you will be reading next?


  1. Let's see my current reading list is:
    The Evidence Bible
    True Woman by Susan Hunt
    Emma by Jane Austen
    Love and Respect by Dr. Emmerson Eggerich

    My to read list: (thanks to my wonderful husband has grown so much. He finishes a book and hands it to me and says, "You have to read this and tell me what you think.")
    Lord of the Flies by William Golding
    1984 by George Orwell
    Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
    The Metamorphosis by Frank Kafka
    The Pearl by John Steinback (reread)
    Of Mice and Men by John Steinback (reread)

    Mostly classics.....

    So you are definitely NOT alone on having a to read list that is a million miles long! :)

  2. Oooo, I have heard Of Mice and Men is really good! And I was born in 1984, so you'll have to tell me what that one is about!

    I've heard of Lord of the Flies too, nothing about it, just the title...

  3. Of Mice and Men is really good! The ending is sad. The only thing I don't like about it (and the hubby agrees) is that it uses foul language WAY to much and says God's name in vain :/ We agreed that it would be best to scratch the "no-no" words out with a pen.

    I haven't read 1984 but from what Gary says it sounds interesting. What I'm getting it is about is the future and how the government will try to control everything and they call this "big brother." They have you on a schedule where you have to do what they tell you to when they tell you to and they erase "history" and make their own ficitional "history," pretty much brainwashing.

    Lord of the Flies makes me mad. Lol. We watched the video and it made me really just want to get on to those boys. It's about a group of boys that are on a plane and the plane crashes on an island. They have to fend for themselves and all but 3 become salvages. The salvages kill 2 of the 3 and ends with them chasing the third one trying to kill him :(
