In April of 2001 I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, teaching first grade. I had a lot more free time to read, yet only managed to get 14 books done (really not so shabby, but by my standards lately, it is).
The highlights include:
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Silent to the Bone by E L Konigsburg
Upstairs at the White House by J B West
Dances With Wolves by Michael Blake
A decade has passed, but I still remember these books. When I read Dances With Wolves, I was reading it for the second time already. Lately I have been thinking about re-reading JB West's Upstairs at the White House, which I find fascinating as he served several administrations. Silent to the Bone was published right after we were subjected to the Louise Woodward trial in America about a British nanny who shook an infant. This book reminded me a lot of that. And the Princess Diaries - who knew how popular this book/series was to become? That might have been my first experience with Meg Cabot.
Ten years from now I wonder what I will remember about what I am reading this month. How about you? Can you remember any books you read ten years ago?
