(i love to read)
I am soooo grateful for public transportation. First reason - I don't have to drive into DC because it takes years off my life every time I have to. Seriously, I live 4 miles from DC but it takes an hour to get there, blech.
Second reason - I have about 2 hours a day to read.
I have been in DC almost four months (whoa) and this is what I have consumed
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl who Played with Fire
Go Ask Alice
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Miracle at St. Anna's
To Kill A Mockingbird
The Forgotten Garden
The Bell Jar
Never Let Me Go
The Kite Runner (reread)
The Catcher in the Rye
I love it, love it, love it! Along with recreational reading I try to keep a good balance with church books, scripture, etc. A good balance, indeed.
I can't wait to try out some of the suggestions you left a few months ago. Percy Jackson, The Uglies and hopefully Harry Potter again. If you have any more suggestions or want me to send you any of the books I have already read, please let me know!
Have a great weekend!
