I did a lot of reading today. In fact, I read 140 pages…outloud… from Incredible Mammals: Meet the World’s Most Amazing Creatures. It is a beautiful book, and very informative: did you know that a polar bear can swim for sixty miles without getting tired? I’d like just a bit of that stamina, thank you!
As much as I enjoy reading full color encyclopedias to my son, I would also like to actually read a few books for myself this year. This is where you come in! Have you read any good books in the last year or two that you think I might like? I’m looking to read three really excellent books this year, and I’d love your suggestions. Here are a few I plan to start soon:
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
Something by Barbara Neely
The Widower’s Tale by Julia Glass
Thanks in advance for suggestions–and thanks for the treadmill hints. Listening to Pandora on my iphone and running sprints, varied speeds, and at an incline for the length of a single song made my 2 miles go by much quicker!
