Book junkie babblings

At the moment I am buying far more books than I am reading. My book list of "want to read" has gotten ridiculously long. Here are a few books I am really looking forward to reading --
* The Story Sisters - by Alice Hoffman
* The Lace Reader - by Brunonia Barry
* The lost book of Salem (also called "the physick book of Deliverence Dan" in USA)- by Katherine Howe
* The Girl who chased the Moon - by Sarah Addison Allen (due out in March 2010)

What are you reading now/next?

  1. Happy Spring Day! I havent read in a long while but i watched twighlight this weekend (i finally realised what the hype is all about) and now i just HAVE to have the book series. Just trying to figure out who to con into buying it for me. Last book i read was Third Degree by Greg Isles and its gripping stuff! I highly recommend it.

  3. Yay! I'm so happy that Sarah Addison Allen has written a new book! "Garden Spells" was one of the most lovely books that I've ever read!

    I'm planning on reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "Love in the Time of Cholera" next.

  5. I did that like crazy last year. I ended up with a stack of 30 books, I kid you not. So I'm not allowing myself to buy anything unless I know I'm going to read it right away... because I still have so many to read! Last thing I read was Julie & Julia ;)

  7. I have the same problem... about a month ago I FINALLY picked up Bridget Jones's Diary. Sadly, Im almost positive I bought it when I was in the 7th grade. And don't tell but my copy of the historian is sitting on my bookshelf getting dustier and dustier, patiently waiting in line to be read.

  13. I just finished Bill Bryson's hilarious travelogue "Neither here nor there" and it was just as side achingly great as all his other ones. Now it's time for "One flew over the cuckoo's nest", I can't wait!

  14. I will be done with After You by Julie Buxbaum within the hour (so good!). I spent over $100 on 14 books (bargain section!!) in Barnes & Noble last week, so I've got a few to dive into after this!

  15. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. It's beautiful.

    I always have more books to read than time, and I always own dozens I haven't had a chance to read yet.

  17. Happy Spring Day for yesterday.

    no, I think I am insane. I've read a lot of books but I always forget what the name of the book or the name of the author.

    Weird thing is that I'll remember whats in it... or rather details around it. lol.

    Current book: AS Media Studies (It's a textbook; I'm writing a test on Thurs 10th)
