My goal is to read 50 books this year. Thus far I am down 46 and have only four more to read before I've reached my goal for the entire year!


  1. Jane Eyre is my favorite book of all time!!! I love the romance and the difficult things she has to endure and how everything works out in the end.

    You should read Three Musketeers by Dumas, or The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas (I'm a Dumas fan)

    What's next on your list?!

  2. 46 books already? WOW! You go girl! Since you almost reached your goal, will there be a new one in mind?
