My New Goal...

.... is to start reading again! When I was younger, I used to read everything that I could get my hands on. Then, when I went to college, well, reading is just part of your life. But since then, I have not been as avid of a reader as I would imagine myself to be. I'm certainly still reading - magazines, art & scrapbooking "how-to" books, texts related to art education, but not novels or other books of interest! Why? I just don't make time for it (sort of like exercise - ha ha). In my free time I'm usually making something or - more often - putzing around on my laptop or watching tv. So, I've set a goal to read one book every 2 weeks. Starting right now - I'm going to dive into Running with Scissors, a book that Wendy loaned me months ago and I've been wanting to read for a long time!

Any books that you recommend for me?

  1. Angels and demons, and the di vinci code are awesome....

    and since you are an art major and had to sit through endless art history classes you will love it...fast reads...I read the di vinci code in 4 hours and angels and demons in about 12....but read angels first....

    in november, I believe dan browns next book will be out....solomons key...

    oh yeah...another awesome book is the girl with the pearl earring and wicked....its a "spin off" of cinderella told in the step sisters perspective....very well written....

  2. Highly recommend the memoir The Glass Castle! Definitely kept my attention, made me emotional and was an excellent book to talk about at book club!!
