Summer Reading List

I made two New Years Resolutions.

1. Read 30 books in 2009
2. To finish all of the book club books before the meetings
So far in 2009 I have read 9 books. I need to step my game up a bit. I have read all of the book club books except for one. I was about 3/4 of the way done with it before the meeting. It was just a sucky book and I could barely force myself to pick it up.
In an effort to inspire myself to get reading I started browsing Amazon and I have compiled a list of books I would like to read before September 1, 2009.
The book club books are a must and I would like to read them first.

Technically this was a book club book from last year. My pick actually. I started it and for some reason was not enjoying it at all. The members of my book club could not say enough good things about it. I am going to give it another chance and see what I think.
I may be the last person on earth to have never finished the Harry Potter books. For several years now I have avoided all conversations and websites that may reveal a plot twist. Unfortunately I have not been very successful and have a general idea what is going to happen. I was not really planning on reading these any time soon but I think its become necessary if I want to be surprised at all. I cannot keep plugging my ears and singing "la la la la" every time a preview for the movie comes on television. Honestly I am little hostile when people bring up Harry Potter. I threaten bodily harm if they spoil anything for me. In the interest in not catching an assault record I really want to pick up the last of this series and just get it over with. Harry Potter books 4,5,6, and 7.

I may run a little bit over my set time limit....but I am going to try my best.

I'm a member of Goodreads (Its basically like your own virtual bookshelf) Its really amazing for when you want to document what you read, are going to read, or find other people's opinions and reviews on books. I find myself reading more now that I'm on it.

By the way, I've got a Perricone MD product to give away over at my blog. Come check it out :)
