Thursday 13 Books

 Thursday 13 Bks Header from Samulli 

13 Books I’ve read in 2009: 

  1. The Last Safe Place on Earth – Richard Peck
    I enjoy Richard Peck, however I barely remember this one.  Seems like it was depressing.

  2. 1984 by George Orwell
    I had this on my reading list forever.  Now, I have to find the movie.  :)

  3. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
    Another book that was on my list forever. 

  4. The Duggars: 20 and Counting!: Raising One of America’s Largest Families–How they Do It by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.
    Very enjoyable!  I’ve always enjoyed stories about large families.

  5. In the House of my Bibi Growing up in Revolutionary Iranby Nastaran Kherad
    Very interesting.

  6. Driving with Dead People by Monica Holloway
    This was a sad depressing book. 

  7. Fat Girl: A True Story by Judith Moore
    Another sad and depressing read.

  8. Finally a Family by Jillian Hart
    T
    his was pure drivil.  I had a hard time getting through it.  I read it to see if I could write something like this.  I think I would vomit on myself.  And yet, if the pay was right I could always get a bucket.

  9.  Rich Day, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money – That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not by Robert T. Kiyosaki
    Interesting.
     
  10. Front Porch Tales by Philip Gulley
    I needed something uplifting after all the depressing reads.  I would highly recommend this book!

  11. Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing by Mignon Fogarty
    Loved this!  Love her!

  12. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    Again, another on my “to read” list.  Highly overrated!
     
  13. Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
    I discovered Amy after I found her book Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons for my children.  I enjoyed reading both books.  :)

  1. Some interesting books there. I try to steer away from depressing topics. I can turn on the news if I feel the need. Fun list. Happy T13!

  2. I’ve read 1984 and Farenheit 451, but nothing else. Thanks for the warnings about the depressing ones.

  3. I’ve read 2, 3 and 12.
