With my decluttering efforts I have found a lot of books stuffed about everywhere you could imagine. There are a lot I’ve picked up and haven’t even opened. So while shelving I used one shelf to stack all those unread books. And there they have been sitting.
After seeing Susan’s post at “A Southern Daydreamer Reads” about her winter reading list, I decided I needed to do as she has done. Make a list, pull the books and start reading.
Here’s my list:
The Good Earth by Pearl Buck
The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Haiku Handbook by William Higginson
Knitting for Dummies
Sewing for Dummies
101 Essential Tips: Bonsai
Nesting; It’s a Chick Thing by Ame Beanland & Emily Terry
Echoes of Fury: The 1980 Eruption of Mt. St. Helens… by Frank Parchman
Population: 485 by Michael Perry
Learning To Breathe by Alison Wright
Wisdom’s Daughters by Steve Wall
The Long Night of Winchell Dear by Robert James Waller
I was surprised tho when I looked at my list. There is only one fiction book (three if you count my “classics”).
So I need some help fluffing my fiction reading list… what books would you recommend? I don’t read mysteries, crime, occult, or just down-right depressing stories.
What should I be looking for that is a good read?
