April Book List

I can't decide if keeping track of what I'm reading is a good idea. Because it turns out I read a lot of junk. (I learned the same thing when I kept a food journal - I eat a lot of junk food, too.) There is an occasional nutritional book. I enjoyed The Book Thief. I was enthralled by the Hunger Games trilogy. I was inspired by 365 Thank Yous. I wanted to be inspired by The Happiness Project, but instead just felt overwhelmed. (I probably need to buy the book, instead of just borrowing it from the library. Then I could tackle just one chapter/month at a time.) But most of my reading is junk. Books that I can leave around the house and in the car for the odd moments I can sit down and read a chapter or two. I actually have several books going at any one time. While I would love to have an e-reader for the convenience of carrying around several books in my purse (as opposed to the weight it currently adds by carrying around several actual books), I would still have a need to leave books scattered around the house in varying states of progress.

I'm so glad you liked The Hunger Games! I need to buy a copy for myself so that I can reread them.

Right now I'm reading the Game of Thrones series. I highly highly highly recommend you check these out soon, if not next. I'm obsessed.
