I decided just for the sake of having something to say, I will talk a bit about the books I have read so far this year. It is no where near what I need to have read based on the list I made for myself. But I have enjoyed my literary journey so far this year
I began the year slogging through World Without End by Ken Follit. I have already posted about that...it was long, enough said.
I have read:
People of the Book
The Shop on Blossom Street
Eat, Pray, Love
Into the Woods
Running with Scissors
Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister
The Russian Concubine
All good reads! Sorry I don't have authors names. Some of the books were from the library or borrowed, I aren't in my possession any longer.

This is my dd looking beautiful and excited to be going to her Senior Prom. I was happy taking a million pictures of she and her boyfriend before they left. It was when they left that I became just a bit sad...
As they drove off in the rented 2010 convertible mustang, that DD refused to put the top down in for fear it would ruin her hair, I couldn't help but think about how fast the time has gone by. She is slowly leaving me. She is still my 1st born, and she is still my "girl", but she is growing up so fast! She is mature, poised, and just down right fabulous! Of course all of this is what I wanted, but it is sad to see that most of my work is done. I wish now that I had looked ahead a moment to this time, and enjoyed the journey a bit more. I suppose I could blame the angst that was so much of HER journey to this point! But I won't. What I am going to do is enjoy, well try to enjoy the rest of her journey.
DD, I love you with all of my heart.
To myself, I say you will enjoy the rest whether you like it or not!!! Wait, isn't that what I used to say to her?...
