The Hunger Games


I'm hoping to read - and remember - a lot more books this year. Does anyone besides me read many many books, some of which aren't really good or bad, and basically leave no impression and then years later, faced with the same book, you think it looks familiar, perhaps you may have read it, but you really aren't sure and don't remember any details? No? Just me? Okay.

Anyway, thanks to the hubs, I'll be doing a lot of my reading on my new kindle. I was never particularly interested in them, but now that I have one, I really like it a lot. It's great to read on and being a busy momma with not too much downtime, the majority of the time I find myself reading is while I'm holding a sleeping baby. For those of you who have never been in this position, it's quite hard to hold a baby with one arm and attempt to hold a book open wide enough to be readable and turn pages with only one arm. While it's possible, barely!, it certainly takes most of the joy out of reading. Enter the kindle. So hold- a-sleeping-baby-and-read-at-the-same-time friendly :)

My first purchased book for the kindle was The Hunger Games. It's good. Not fantastic, but definitely interesting. I liked it. It's the first of a trilogy, and I plan on reading the next two as well.

I'm always looking for new books to read, so anytime you have a suggestion, please pass it on to me :)

  1. YES! I do the EXACT same thing. I have reread books before, I'm sure. Shows just what kind of impression they leave.

    Oh, and about your post before...if you go under settings, you can get the comments emailed to you. That's what I do. That way, I can reply and email back (just like what I was about to do to your sweet comment earlier, but not necessary now since I've written you a long note here!)

    Thanks for the recommendation of Hunger Games. When I read to the 8th grade students, they LOVE hunger games. I work with a bunch of behavioral problem children and the fact that they ASK for something is outstanding, so it can't be that bad huh?

  2. I really enjoyed reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo/Girl who Played with Fire/Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest series. It's easy enough to pick up and put down with baby interruptions and fun to read.

    I also really enjoyed The American Wife, The Glass Castle, and Sarah's Key. I was an English major in undergrad, so I read a lot and love to do book exchanges. I guess that wouldn't work with a kindle, huh? :)
