A Blast From the Past

Ten years ago I was pregnant-still- with my first child. I was finishing up library classes at UNI and slogging across campus with enormous cataloguing books in total discomfort. UGH! I know I had a lot more free time back then, so what was I reading a decade ago? Five books from July 2001 include:

Recommended by a good friend, this is a LONG book. I enjoyed it but think I should re-read it more slowly instead of devouring it in a day.

What's not to like about a book about librarians bringing book to people in remote areas? Very interesting.

I can't believe it's been 10 years since Weiner's first book came out. This is still one of my favorites.

Mostly Deaver's books creep me out, but this one I found fascinating with the technology. I wonder how it would stand up ten years later.Joan Bauer- another author I love for her unique, quirky characters. I think this is the first book I read by Bauer. I haven't missed one since.

What about you? What were you reading in July of 2001?

Are you kidding me? You read LADIES OF THE CLUB in one day? Amazing! It is mega-long (1200+ pages I think). I tip my hat to you. I've considered reading it again with the perspective of being a woman of "a certain age", but it is so long. It would take me forever. Maybe this winter.

I have no clue what Ladies of the Club is about, but I remember trying to read it as a teenager for the simple reason that I prided myself on reading giant books. I did not finish.
