What's on your reading list?

My stack of books to-read is getting bigger and bigger. I got a few new ones for Christmas. Neil gave me The Story of Brutus by Casey Anderson. I've seen Brutus the bear at his sanctuary near Bozeman, but have yet to meet Casey in person, other than talking to him via Facebook. Rick gave me The Snow Angel by Glenn Beck. I know a lot of people despise him, but I enjoy listening to what he has to say. His other book, The Christmas Sweater was really, really good, so I'm hoping this one is also. Neither of those books are political, by the way, but fiction. Montana Women Homesteaders was given to me by Denny. He's such a cool cat and knows exactly what I like.

The other books I'm either reading or want to start reading soon. I found Thyroid Power at a Borders store when they were closing down. I have hypothyroidism, so I hope this book helps me learn a little more about that. A History of Pirates I got at a used bookstore the other day. I had exchanged some books for store credit, so that was one of the free ones I got back. I started it last night and I think it's going to be pretty interesting. Pirates were so brutal, and it's fascinating to see all of the politics involved regarding the different countries. I bought Do Not Feed The Bears when we went to Yellowstone awhile back, but sadly, I haven't made time to start it yet. Speaking Ill of the Dead is Nicole's book, but I'm slowly reading it.

It's a crazy pile of books for me. I just need to pick ONE and concentrate on finishing it. It seems I'm doing more writing than reading these days, which really isn't a bad thing when I stop to think about it.

So, how about you -- what's in your to-read pile?

  1. I’m reading the Theodosia Throckmorton series by Robin LaFevers.

    Loving it so far!

    BTW, Glenn Beck was in Fairhope, AL last week or the week before. Fairhope is about an hour or so away from my house. You can see highlights of his appearance if you friend the “Page and Palette” bookstore on Facebook.

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Rena! :)
