the pile of books is smaller now...

... but possibly only because I have misplaced a couple of books that should be in this stack... sigh.

Here's the link to what the stack looked like in January.

Here's the stack today...

Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett

This one I haven't started yet. I just got it from the library on Monday. I'm pre-reading it for Alex. That boy has really taken off with is reading. Right now he's burning through the first Harry Potter book. Anyway... back to this book... yes, I'm pre-reading it for Alex but I do love to read a good juvenile fiction book occasionally. This one is set here in Chicago and is billed as the Da Vinci Code for kids... sounds good to me!
The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs

This book is one of my picks this year for the book club that Jeff and I do. It is really a good read... I'm really truly enjoying it. It is humorous in parts but it is far from a farce. He is taking his quest very seriously and sometimes that's just plain funny. I'm just about 3/4 of the way through it, so I might have more to say about it once I'm through. I do enjoy his writing style and I just might have to add his other book, The Know-It-All, to my reading pile.

Don Quixote... it's still there and I still haven't started it... ugh.

And this one is still there... double ugh. I was doing okay with it but then refused to read it on my flight to California for CHA... now it just sits on my nightstand unfinished.

Well... the kids just got back from their 3 1/2 hour playdate at the neighbor's house... I'm back on duty!


  1. I like the stack of books. I need to start to do that. Just would one put the photo wateramrk on their digital photos. I am looking to do that on mine!?? Thanks! Kristin

  2. Love the book stack idea. I need to do that so it is a physical reminder. Does anyone know how to put that watermark on the digital photos? I am looking to do that on mine! Thanks, Kristin
