To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? I literally just finished “Escape” this morning….I had about 100 pages left and I just could NOT put it down until I got to the end. Even though I KNEW she had escaped, I wanted to hurry up and get to that part so I could hear the happy news of it and how her life was so much better now.

What did you recently finish reading? “Escape” by Carolyn Jessop with Lauren Palmer….WOW…I could probably go on for days about this book. The stuff this woman had to go through makes me feel so grateful for the life I have. It’s just horrific how this woman was treated by her husband, her sister wives, step children and even some of her own children, and the people who helped run the Fundamentalist sect she was in. I had already read so much last year in the book, “Stolen Innocence” by Elissa Wall(another amazing book!) and this book just exposed even more about how bad it was under the rule of FLDS with Rulon Jeffs going into Warren Jeffs taking over. So thankful they finally arrested that guy and put him away…..if you read either one of these books, you will understand what I mean. Just an incredible revealing look into what life was like for women in these communities.

What do you think you’ll read next? I think I’m gonna read “Little Earthquakes” by Jennifer Weiner…time for a chick lit fix! 🙂

I’m currently only 4 books away from completing my challenge of reading 50 books in 2011! Even though I have slowed down my reading some, I KNOW I will have no problem with meeting that goal and since I can change the goal, I’m thinking of increasing the number a bit. Do you think I should make it 75? or should I only increase it to about 60? OR do you think I shouldn’t change it at all and just continue reading regardless and be happy I passed my challenge goal?

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
