I don't know if I ever shared that I love to read. I take hiatus' from time to time becasue I get consumed in books and can't do anything else (as if I will finish anything anyway LOL)
I recently downloaded top read lists from 1997 t0 2007, including some of Oprah's Books Lists then checked out as many as were available at the library.
In 2010, I plan to regular book reviews. Not too long - just my two cents.
Book Review #1
Currently reading A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. Notice the turquoise background on book - I knew it'd be good :)
You may remember James Frey from the Oprah drama, because The Smoking Gun exposed him for fabricating parts of his book, when it was marketed as a memoir. Read about what happened here.
He incorporated the experience in an excerpt in his recent book, Bright Shiny Morning. No wonder Oprah called and apologized.
My Two Cents:
Oprah's TV ego was bruised and she did him wrong. Who gives a damn if he embellished! (yes, i cussed and may do it again *eye roll*...books hype me up)
It was still his story. The book is GENIUS! I love the way it is written - with the random capitalization and lack of punctuation in dialogue.
It is intriguing, compelling and captivating, and, I'm sure, inspiring to other addicts.
