Blast From the Past

These are a few highlights from my reading in November of 2004.  How does time go so quickly?

Skywriting by Jane Pauley
I grew up watching Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel on the Today show, and still enjoy hearing about her.

Awake by Elizabeth Graver -   I remember this book simply because the child in this book suffers from the disease where sunlight is fatal. 

Citizen Girls by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus - these two women teamed up to write the Nanny Diaries and although this one doesn't have very good rating on Goodreads, I remember enjoying this novel which paid tribute to college graduates everywhere who were busy trying make ends meet while working mundane jobs they felt they were overqualified for.

A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg - you can't go wrong with Fannie Flagg. This is a nice little Christmas novella that is perfect for the holiday season.

Outside Valentine by Liza Ward - I'll admit to remembering the cover of this novel more than the plot, but as I look at the synopsis am sure my interest in this novel came from the fact that this based on true events that occurred in Nebraska in the 1950s.

So, what about you? What were you reading in November of 2004?  Last year?

I think Flagg wrote Whistle Stop Cafe right? I liked that one but her style of writing is not something I seek out anymore. Funny, because they typically are feel good books and who doesn't want to feel good? Apparently me!

I am trying really hard to finish my book club book Five Days at Memorial. The first half is riveting and the second half is a real snooze.
