  1. I read two of the same books. Bet Your Bottom Dollar (the books that follow are also good) and The Help.

    I’ll have to look for the other books in that series. That was a fun, time filler of a book. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I loved ‘The Help’. That book was chosen as our community read, and the organizers were able to bring the author, Kathryn Stockett, in to speak about it. She was extremely witty. And she gave a lot of interesting back stories to the story. For example, when she opened the floor to questions from the audience she told us the one question she didn’t want us asking is if Skeeter was based on her. She said that her mother’s friends tend to ask her that a lot, and it insults her because Skeeter was described as ugly in the book.

    She closed the presentation by reading the essay she wrote about her home state, Mississippi, that’s included at the end of ‘The Help’. Amazing.

    Wow, really? That does sound like a really cool presentation to be at. That was definitely one of the better books I read this past year.

  3. That list puts me to shame! I only read one book, in its entirety, in 2010. And though it was a literary anthology–still it was just one book!

    One book really? Wow. Well, this year I’m going to try to really complete 50. Of course it’s only March 1st so we’ll just see how the rest of the year goes. I’m already behind.
