I haven't read a book since I read the twilight series. I am not an avid-reader by any means but I do like certain authors, like Mitch Albom. I am trying to read the Tiem Travler's Wife but sdly cant get into it or keep up with it. It has been sitting on my nightstand quite some time now.

Nice list--I like that you're including cookbooks. I always WANT to read cookbooks and try stuff from them, but I feel like I'm cheating by including them in my reading list. You've given me courage, maybe I'll include the cookbooks in the next round!

Enjoy your holidays!

I love books. I only have one going on my nightstand at a time nowadays. Just finished the last book in the Twilight series and moving on to a non-fiction book about parenting. Trying to decide whether I should tackle the Baby Food book or the Baby Sleeping book! And after that I want to read something for my book club, which will be like dessert after the "required" reading.

Stopping by from SITS!

great list of books! I'm a bread maker and have 'Artesian Bread in 5 Min. a Day" great book. I learned my craft originally from "Laurel's Bread Book". I would like to read "American Pie" as I still haven't figured out how to make a decent pizza crust.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I read one book by Jodie Picoult, and it tore me apart. It was a great book, but harrowing. So I picked up another one by her, read the first chapter, put it down and never went there again.

It's exhausting to read such emotional turmoil! The one I put down was called "The Pact" and it starts with the death of a teenager in what is a suicide pact, then backtracks to the events that lead up to this event.

I couldn't bear to read it, knowing that the outcome was going to be the same tragedy. Even on her site she says that she hears a lot of people put the novel down because the ages of their own children are too close.

Still, I hope it's not an issue I one day have to face with my girls!

You really have managed to read a great number of books this month though! I am quite envious! I plan to do some reading catchup over christmas!
