  1. With all that you do, when will you find the time?

    • Lots of travel time! I read anytime I can because for years I did not have time to do it. Now I make time!!! And this is the easiest way for me to keep track. My mom has had a list going since college, I think. I am not that good!

  2. wow…I have never heard any of those books before

  3. no way could I find time to read 10 books! Boy do I wish though. at least I can have your list as a handy reference guide should I find the time!

    • Well not everything that I read is worth reading probably. I used to review them but that got tiresome for me. So now I just list them. There are so many great books out there!!!!

  4. That’s quite the list BethAnn! Good luck getting through them all – you must be planning a lot of travelling to have such an ambitious list. I keep an Excel spreadsheet with lists of books I’d like to read & then tick them off as I read them.

  5. Goodness, Beth Ann! I don’t know how you find the time to read so much!

  6. OK, number 5 I for sure need to check out. I’m currently reading Snoopy’s Guide to the Writing Life, edited by Barnaby Conrad and Monte Schulz which incorporates Peanuts cartoons with advice from writers. This was recommended by Sue Ready at her blog, Ever Ready. I didn’t think I would ever read a book with comic strips as a dominant writing reference tool. But it’s a great read thus far and I’m picking up some tips.

    • It is a good read—lots of do’s and don’ts and helpful stuff in there . Chris got it for me for Christmas and I skimmed parts of it but will go back to it later I am sure. Snoopy’s book sounds intriguing!!!

  7. Guilty Wives by James Patterson and David Ellis is a great book! Glad to see its on your list!

    • I totally enjoyed it!!!!! I haven’t read one of his for a long time so it was nice to read one and now I need to go get some more from the library!

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
