Books Read in 2009

This is a fitting post for the end of the year. My sister also published her list of books read, half of which I've never read before. She's read more books in the last six months than is typical for her, so I'm very proud of her.

As for me, I had a friend who told me in May that I'd better get all my reading in then because it would be a long time before I'd be able to pick up another book. I must admit, much of my reading in the first two months of Pearl's life was simply to prove him wrong. ;-) I can't remember many books that I read before she was born, so this list almost all books I have read since June. I'm certain this list is not complete, even since June, but I wasn't really keeping track and my brain cells are otherwise engaged at the moment.

*Agatha Christie novels (I discovered them sometime in June or July, and have been devouring them ever since):

  • Murder on the Orient Express
  • Death on the Nile
  • Murder is Easy
  • The Man in the Brown Suit
  • The Mysterious Affair at Styles
  • Murder on the Links
  • Poirot Investigates
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
  • The Murder at the Vicarage
  • The Body in the Library
  • And Then There Were None (as much as I'm ever going to read it - I was so scared a few chapters in that I skipped to the end to read the conclusion)
*Sense and Sensibility
*The Three Musketeers
*The Plain Princess
*The Wonderful Wizard of OZ (the last book I read before Pearl was born)
*Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (okay, here's another I read before Pearl was born... apparently I remember more than I thought)
*Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (re-read)
*Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (re-read)
*A Study in Scarlet

And I'm currently reading:

*Five Children and It
*The Incredible Journey
*Stuart Little
(And more Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries, in order, each time I go to the library. It's my goal to read through all of them.)

  • Ginny

    My mother was a voracious reader. Having children did not deter her. Because of her example, all of her children love reading, also. None of us can stand to be without several books going at one time. LOL!

    By the way, I hightly recommend the Miss Read books. They are severely NIFTY! :-D
