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 :)
