July's Books

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Since I've started keeping track of my reading, I've noticed that there are times I read very little. When I am stressed, very busy, or not sleeping well - I don't have the energy to pick up a book.

July was a slow month for me. Between packing for vacation, unpacking, and getting my son ready for school, I only read five books. :(

- The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby
- Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
- Smoke, Mirrors, and Murder by Ann Rule

To Dance With the White Dog was my favorite. It was a reread - and I was not disappointed. I first read it in the early 1990s, and was just a captivated today as I was then.

I love the quote and a local bookstore sells tee shirts with that quote on them.
