Summer 2011 Book List

 Last summer I made a rather long book list but managed to get through only a couple before the summer came to an end. Being a bit of a perfectionist, even when it comes to reading, it irks me to have an incomplete list. I credit my failure due to the fact that I didn't have in my possession some of the books that I aimed to read. I had forgotten about the classic bound books that my mom used to decorate our living room because, as they were decoration, I wasn't allowed to touch them as a kid. Upon rediscovering them, I can now, without fail, read at least one classic hard covered novel a week and alternate them each week with modern paperback novels. Without further ado here is my shorter compiled list of books that I want to read before stifling August gives away to a crisp September.
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Through the Looking Glass
  • Treasure Island
  • Eat Pray Love
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
  • (re-read) The Harry Potter series
  • The Frugalista Files*

Eternally yours,
Stephanie

It is indeed a good list. I have to say I read a lot less than I used to and it was a conscious decision. I used to be really proud that my only vice was reading. I then did a creative course and when I got half way through the chapter opened with the words that over reading was a a creative road block.I nearly fell over. I now spend less time reading and more time doing. Xxxx
