So Many Books, So Little Time


Just a quick post to let all you bibliophiles know about Cosmopolitan magazine's list of top reads for the spring. John Searles, Cosmo's book editor, was on the Today Show this morning with a list of ten great reads. One of the books, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, is on my current "to read" list and another, Darling Jim by Christian Moerk, I am familiar with. The others were all new to me. The titles cover a variety of genres from literary and contemporary fiction to thrillers, chick lit, memoirs and nonfiction. How exciting is that? I love it when I learn about a whole bunch of new books I might want to read. I'm not sure all of them are my cup of tea, but at least a couple of them sound intriguing. So if you're wondering what to read next, you might want to check out the list on the Today Show's website. There you will find pictures of all the books, plus a quick synopsis of the plots. Happy reading!

30 - They really did sound good didn't they. There was just one that I was not all interested in. The last one - Nudge. It was compared to Malcolm Gladwell's Blink, which I didn't like at all. That whole genre is not my cup of tea.

I wasn't sure about that one either. I had samples of them all, except Lowboy which wasn't available, sent to my Kindle. That's one feature of the Kindle I love! Now if only I can stay off of the internet long enough to read them! I haven't been much in the mood for reading lately for some odd reason.

30- I have been having the same problem lately. I'm fairly new to blogging (I got started in February) and suddenly I'm really hooked on it. I find I'm spending a lot of my free time blog hopping, reading other blogs and writing posts. So, my reading time is very limited. Though it does seem like I'm gaining a bit of a balance now. Moderation in all things, right? Yeah, right!
