my own personal book club

Do you ever have 897435 books on your list, but you don't have time to start any of them? I do...all the time. But once I start reading, I'm a machine. I love going to the beach and getting through a stack of books before the week's over. LOVE it. And I definitely go through phases: fiction, Jodi Picoult, mystery, James Patterson, non-fiction/biographical, Nicholas Sparks, etc.

Right now, I'm on a nonfiction kick. Here's my current list:

LOVE LOVE LOVE Donald Miller. This one is going to be good.
"It's true that while ambition creates fear, it also creates the story. But it's a good trade, because as soon as you point toward a horizon, life no longer feels meaningless. And suddenly there is risk in your story and a question about whether you'll make it."
This absolutely sums up my life right now.

Anything I should add to my list?

I'm making an addendum to my weekend to-do list. In additional to maybe strolling the flea market with my mom and definitely seeing if Joann Fabric has anything to offer, I think I see a stint at Barnes and Noble in my future.

Also, 71 days to go.
