What I Read in 2011

  • Passing for Thin: Losing Half My Weight and Finding Myself, by Frances Kuffel
  • Waiter Rant, by Steve Dublanica
  • Last Time I Saw You, by Elizabeth Berg
    • I have read (and re-read) everything she’s written.  I just love her.
  • A Good Man, by Judith Henry Wall
  • Men with Balls: The Professional Athlete’s Handbook, by Drew Magary (of Deadspin and KSK)
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger (WAY, way better than the movie)
  • True Blue, by David Baldacci
  • The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
  • Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins
  • Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins
  • Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love, by Matthew Logelin
    • I can’t remember how I came across Matt’s website for the  first time, but it was a little less than three years ago, only a very short time after his wife died 27 hours after giving birth to their daughter Madeline.  Their story, told regularly on Matt’s blog, is moving in so many ways.  The book is an account of Matt and Liz’s relationship, Liz’s death, and the first year of Maddy’s life.  It’s unbelievable – I cried (a lot), I laughed (a lot).  Read it.

One thought on “What I Read in 2011

  1. New follower, thorugh the Hop & Follow.I love my Kindle, but some books I have to get in print. Especially if I think I might be flipping back to double check something, I hate not being able to do that quickly on a Kindle. My husband has gotten all excited about buying comic books on our iPad, but I just can’t do it. My comic books have to be physical.
