2014 Reading List

2014 Reading List

My daughter is attempting to read every book on her summer reading list.  All 71 of  them.


Which makes me feel about {this} small since 71 books would take me about 15 years to read.  I should read more- by the time I crawl into bed at 11:30 at night I’m ready to sleep (this drives Mr. Robinson crazy, it takes him hours for his mind to quiet).  There’s nothing on television lately.  In fact, America has hit an all time low.  There was a commercial for a television show where you watch people watching television.  Are they serious? No, really- are we that dumb now?


In an effort to set an example keep up with the book worms in our family, I’ve compiled my own list of books I want to read.  I’d like to call it ‘My Summer Reading List’ but I know better- they won’t be done by summer.  It will take me a while to get through them all, but that is just what I plan to do.


There’s about 6 months left in the year, I think I can finish all 10 of them by then.  So ‘My 2014 Reading List’ it is:

    Oh yes! I’ve heard this one is really good. In fact, my friend Karen Unger told me about it– and I even wrote it down in my notes. Thanks for reminding me!!
