I have followed Jennifer Weiner’s blog and twitter for ages and know that she is pretty sensitive about the title “chicklit,” because it diminishes the importance of the book and its content in some people’s eyes. “Chicklit” isn’t given column space in prominent book review publications. Interesting to think about…
I can’t pick one book, so I’ll leave it at that. 🙂
#25 on my list of things to do was to Go to the Trempeleau Hotel for an outdoor concert. The Trempeleau Hotel is in the small town of Trempeleau along the Mississippi River. There is a lawn where they hold outdoor concerts in the summer and Beth and I were able to take in a concert there. I think it was the summer of 2008, but for the life of me I can’t remember who we saw! It’ll come to me (or Beth will remember). We brought our own lawn chairs and had yummy food and drink in the late summer evening. It was a great time.
If I spent as much time reading books as I did reading blogs, I’d have put away quite a few more books in 2011! But I do enjoy reading what others are reading, how they read, what kinds of things they like to read, and how they write about what they read! Over on http://callapidderdays.com a “Spring Reading Thing” started! I’m going to participate because it’s a simple event.
Simply create a list (can be ever-changing) of books that you want to read this spring – March 20 – June 20! Write about it. Link to her site. Write about it at its completion. Sounds simple enough! And so, with the help of my stack of books from the library and my goodreads account, here is a start on my list of books TBR this spring!
