What I’m Going to Read: Round 7

I am kind of ludicrously excited that The Magician’s Assistant by Ann Patchett won. Kelly has been pushing this book for MONTHS, people, and I keep meaning to read it and then forget about it (story of my life).

Can I just say how much I appreciate all your suggestions? I have totally loved doing this thing and it would be so incredibly lame if only two or three people made suggestions.

Ahem, in less cheesy-group-hug news, the other nominations:

Horrifingly, I have read exactly ONE book on this list. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, which is one of my favorite books. Oh, I love this book. But, really? ONE?!?! Must step it up. Perhaps I’ll secretly read every book on this list this month and than laugh like a loon when I have read over half the recommendations next month.

Or perhaps I won’t.

  1. I totally want to steal this idea for my blog. People of the internet! Decide what the librarians read!

  2. *GASP!*

    (I'm secretly kind of relieved–you have as much reading potential ahead of you as most of the rest of us)

  3. yay!! i'm so glad you loved Ender's Game. i really wanted to hear what you thought of it, because i've loved every single book you've recommended. now i'm not even upset that mine didn't get picked!

    I personally am going to save this list for the next time (read: never) I don't have a stack of books lined up to read. Seriously, though, I **always** need new recommendations, because let's face it, I hate when I read something and am not so enthused about it!

  5. If you get the chance to listen to audiobooks, Bloody Jack is a great recording! Katherine Kellgren narrates and she is AWESOME!

  6. Obviously, I was too busy to BE RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED YOU GET TO READ THIS ONE!!!

    I love being a winner. And I see you next weekend. And you're reading my book!

  7. It looks like I've read nine of those … but I'm going to make sure the rest are on my to-read list. Happy reading!
