Reading in 2009

January 18, 2009

...so I finished  The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan and I have to say from the moment I started reading this book it took me back to my teenage years and brought back memories from my own childhood.  Early on she talks about Wacky Packages stickers (like shot wheels and cap'n crud) I had notebooks covered in these humorous stickers, each one funnier than the next.  And also the T-shirts in which the collar was cut off at just the right flashdance angle.... too funny!


I found the book to be well written, with enough humor to help you get through the sadness that was present throughout the book.  It was divided into past and present every other chapter, which made the book more enjoyable for me.  In fact this was the 2nd book of my 2009 readings that was written the same way.  The first was Out stealing horses.

This has me at 2 books in just over two weeks for the start of my 50+ books in 2009. Technically I need to read just over 4 books a month to reach my goal, so we'll see how that goes?

Next will be either finishing Kentucky Rich by Fern Michaels or starting the latest Nicholas Sparks that I picked up?

Joel and I watched Burn after reading the other night and while the movie itself is different.  I just loved the roles that Brad Pitt and George Clooney played.  I don't think I ever saw Brad Pitt in this type of role, it kept me laughing the entire movie.
