March reading

What will I read in March? Hmm...well, I hope to finish "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families" and "Getting Things Done". Beyond that, I am just not sure what to read next. Maybe "The Book Thief". Maybe "The Grapes of Wrath". I should really finish "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle".

I have three "hobbies" in a sense. I love to read. I love to cook. And I love to run (most of the time). It seems that if I am really into any one of these things, the other two suffer. And right now, I'm in a bit of a reading drought. That's probably okay, since I often find myself in the midst of a reading binge. I need balance. And if I'm going to cook, I need to run. :) (Cooking and reading do not do good things to my waistline.)

The Olympics and Other Distractions

Wow. I haven't done much reading in the past few weeks. I'll blame it on the Olympics, college basketball, and our Colorado ski trip. Although, if it weren't for that trip, I might not have finished but two books in February.

So, what did I read/finish since the last update?
365 Nights
The Painted Veil (but I didn't quite finish it before book club)
Sweethearts (YA)
The Cruelest Month

I've also been reading on "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families", which is good but very long. And, I've been reading a book for work called "Getting Things Done". The rest of my reading has has included cooking magazines, a running magazine, blogs, the newspaper, etc. I haven't found much in the past few weeks that has really grabbed my attention. I should probably go back to my list and request one of those books at the library.
