Books (2011)

I usually keep a list for myself of what I’ve read each year just for myself really. But since I have a blog I thought I would post it on here as a way to keep track in a more public forum. You can see that whilst I’ve been at home in March because of my dislocated knee my read has increased exponentially!

  1. I love your eclectic mix of classics (Lewis and Alcott), Agatha Christie mysteries, fantasy, Stephen Fry, Suzanne Collins, and contemporary literary fiction like Room. You’re my type of reader. 🙂

  2. How did you like Teach Like Your Hair is on Fire? Rafe’s the man. Masses of little kids reciting Shakespeare from heart AND they love it – now that’s teaching.

  3. Though you probably won’t finish it in a week, you should read The Count of Monte Cristo. I just finished it and absolutely loved it! Check out an excerpt of it on my blog at http://hardbacked.wordpress.com/2011/08/03/excerpt-gold/. Sounds like you’re having fun reading!

  4. I love your list of books! So well-rounded!

  5. I like really like the photo because I love old books. I think i’ll use the list like a shopping list…to the library ^^
