Copy of Booklist 2010

I finished 2 new books, A Big Little life and Smoking Mirror. I started another book, a reread: The Prodigal Summer. I am about 1/13th of the way through. I am LOVING IT! I forgot how much I loved it. It's the audio book--I read the paper one years ago. The thing about the audio book is that Barabara Kingsolver HERSELF is reading it and has a wonderful voice!!!

BIG little is about Dean Koontz's dog, a golden retriever that had been a helper dog. It's pretty good, if you don't mind pooping and peeing and barfing and a little religious stuff. Of course, it made me cry.

Smoking Mirror is about Gauguin and is interesting but a little strange. I liked it.

I am probably, after I do some errands, going over to Roalndale--I am writing this from google docs, becasue I have hurry, I have not been to gmail and don't know when I will get a chance, not for a while. It is sunny and nice--did I tell you the aconites are coming up out front, and tiluips are up, and daffies now 4-6 inches. And justs ince yesterday, the Hellebore (Easter Rose) double bud is up another couple inches.

I have still NOT started The poet and the Lady. It's a hardcover book.

Unfinished books 2010:

  1. Pirate Latitudes, Michael Crichton, March, 2010--read half (UGH!) :-( too much graphic violence for me. The story line would have been interesting if it weren't for the overdone violence. I would guess this is probably a book intended for those "Men are from Mars" men.

Movies 2010--Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (read first, much earlier)
