the pile. by my bedside.



here's a question:

if i'm partway into all of these books, am i actually reading any of them?

maybe it's time to just choose one and go from there. find some focus, perhaps?

I'm in the middle of two of them, and have the same problem. So hard to focus on just one at a time! How is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle?

No! Reading a little at a time is a wonderful thing to do. I think it's better for you, too. Like grazing vs. large meal eating.

That happens to me all the time, but a couple of weeks ago I finally got serious about reading The Book Thief and The Swan Thieves. Both incredible, by the way.
Not that you're looking for anything else to read right now...

the shelf by my bed looks just like this, only I have half the books. My problem is I start reading and lose interest. But it definitely always goes better for me when there's only one book!

amen lady.

i've got a stack about that size by my bed.

currently the list reads.

life of pi.
hunger games.
little bee.
pride and prejudice {i'm always flipping through this one.}
and
breakfast with tiffany's.

i should focus on one too.

:)

Is the 2nd to the bottom "Everything is Illuminated?" I REALLY want to read that book! I've been meaning to, but never got around to it (that, plus I have a big stack myself and I can't get around to reading those either) but the movie is awesome, so I know I need to get to this book when I find a copy.

I loved Eat. Pray, Love! And they are making a movie with Julia Roberts so you should finish it before that happens! =)

I totally stack books and wade through them sporadically! It makes no sense.

Love your choices though.

that happens to me all the time... it seems like you're in good company.

i am dying to read animal, vegetable, miracle... how is it? i devoured eat, pray, love... i must have read it three times!

jessica said...

such a good pile, though! if it soothes you, my half-way read pile is similarly tall, and i kind of secretly like it, knowing i can open any or all at any time :-)

Amber said...

O! I JUST finished Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.
You're gonna love it.

olivia rae said...

haha i'm in the same boat. and we have the exact same taste in books! how's animal, vegetable, miracle?? i just started the nine rooms of happiness and it is SO inspiring.

to all that have asked...

animal, vegetable, miracle is divine--i gave it to my father (along with eating animals) for christmas so we'd have a common source of info which we could discuss.
