Words from a Northern girl with a big appetite for living the best life.

Back in the day, I had a troll collection on display at my little town's local library. I was so proud of the wide variety of trolls I owned, especially the one with hot pink hair, a hot pink bikini, and a hot pink jeweled belly button. In any case, I loved that the librarian let me have the display case all to my self to show off my sassy little friends. I loved the library. It was my home away from home after school and on hot summer days. There was nothing better than reading in front of the air conditioner. Read. Read. Read. I couldn't get enough. Then something happened and I stopped reading. Maybe life got too busy. And I moved away and didn't take the time to find a new library. Well folks. I'm so pleased to announce that I've finally joined my new local library and I am thrilled about that!
So far I've read: The Last Lecture by Randy Paush. If you haven't read it, I highly suggest that you do. You can also watch his official "last lecture" on YouTube. The book is very moving and motivational. It was a quick read, a tear jerker, and thought provoking.
Now I'm reading Memoirs of a Geishaby Arthur Golden. I'm only up to chapter four, but I'm intrigued. I am afraid of what I will be reading as the book continues (I feel so bad to hear about young girls going through what these characters are experiencing thus far.) And I'm sure you have already read the book. As I said, I haven't read a good book in some time.
And my friend Ke. who I visited in NYC also gave me a book to read and I just loved it! Have you read Jamima J by Jane Green? For all of you food lovers out there, if you're anything like me, you might just really relate to Jamima when you're having one of those binge eating days/nights.
Now that I'm back on the reading train, what do you suggest I pick up next at the library?
