So I was putting together my list of books to read this fall – during the dreaded football season and cold, boring Sundays – and I had an idea. Instead of buying all of these, which is my normal approach, I thought I would see if anyone wanted to trade me for a book I have they would like to read. If this doesn’t work out I will do what I should have done a long time ago which is go to the library. First is the list of books that I have to trade – we can either trade for life or we could return them back if you’d like.
90 Minutes in Heaven – Don Piper
A New Earth – Eckhart Tolle
A Million Little Pieces – James Frey (controversy or not, this book is so amazing)
Faith Hill: Piece of My Heart – James L. Dickerson
My Friend Leonard – James Frey (sequel to A Million Little Pieces)
One More Day – Mitch Albom
Running With Scissors – Augusten Burroughs
The Choice – Nicholas Sparks
The Guardian – Nicholas Sparks
The Pursuit of Happyness – Chris Gardner
The Secret – Rhonda Byrne
The Starter Wife – Gigi Levangie Grazer
Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy – Geralyn Lucas
Witness: For the Prosecution of Scott Peterson – Amber Frey
Here is my list of books to read which I should change from “this fall” to “this year” because even though I plan to read a lot this fall (and winter) I know I won’t read 15 books. Hey wait, that felt like a bit of a challenge to myself. Maybe read all 15 plus the one I’m finishing up now before 2010? Oh, IT’S ON.
Okay now that that’s settled, onto the books I’d like to borrow from you (many from the BBC 100 list). If you have different books you think are fab let me know and I’ll trade you for that one instead!
