Book Pile

I use to be able to read at least a book a week. Back before kids, I would read 3 or 4 a week! I LOVE to dive into a book and escape. I had three big bookcases filled with books. Since we live in a small ranch, I gave away almost all of them because we just didn't have the room. Now with two kids, I've read two books in 10 weeks. I first read Two Kisses for Maddy. Then, because of the Royal Wedding, I went to the library and just finished reading A Royal Duty by Paul Burrell. I am currently reading How to Bake the Perfect Life by Barbara O'Neal , another library book and I am enjoying it. My book pile is backing up and most are from the library so I need to get on it! I always try to get my books from the library, since I usually read them so fast, I think it's a waste of money to buy them right now.

Here is a list of books I currently have at my house to read:

Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
44 Charles St by Danielle Steel
A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel
Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Friendship Bread by Darien Gee
The Murderer's Daughters by Randy Susan Meyers

Some of the books I want to read by 2012:

Life's That Way by Jim Beaver
Too Many Cooks by Emily Franklin
Happy Birthday by Danielle Steel
Escape by Barbara Delinsky
The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
The Lost Recipe of Happiness by Barbara O'Neal
The Secret of Everything by Barbara O'Neal
Inconceivable by Carolyn & Sean Savage


  1. Hey Jen...can I suggest the author Elin Hilderbrand. Her books are set on Nantucket Island where she lives. They're great beach books.
