  1. I always love to see what people have read, and what they think of the books. Peony in Love is next to my bed because a girlfriend of mine read it and LOVED it. I just another list from someone and they put The Time Travelers Wife on their list of least favorites! Horrors!!! lol I hope to get to A Thousand Splended Suns this year.

  2. Thank you for posting your reading list - I'm going to try and read @ least 1 book/month in 2010!

    On another note - you seem to get so much done in your day... Could you post some of your time management and organizational suggestions for those of us struggling to find more time to quilt!

    Thank You!

  3. I like your book list in your sidebar. I was wondering if you could tell me how or where you found to create it. Thanks so much.

  4. What a wonderful list! I am inspired to put together my reading list too. I think I have a few of the same books on my list. Too bad you didn't like The Road - I loved it (very dark!).
