    I always have a long list of books too. If only there were enough time in life to read all the books I’d like to!

    Ooh. Getting Things Done is scary. 😉 I couldn’t fathom dumping all of my stuff in the middle of the room to get started, so never finished.

    My biggest reading project at the moment is Mother Earth News – everything else is packed.

    Mile high pile of book? Me? Um….yah.

    The next five on the list are:

    City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau-I’ve read it, but need to re-read it for my teen book club next Friday.

    What Would The Founders Do? by Richard Brookhiser

    Face Down O’er the Border by Kathy Lynn Emerson

    People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks

    Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor (Sequel to The Looking Glass Wars)-My daughter is driving me crazy trying to get me to read it so she has someone to talk to about it 😉 Not that it will be a great hardship, I loved The Looking Glass Wars.

    Some of these have been in my pile for a LOOOONG time, some just made it there–here are five (there are others but I’ll just pick these):

    The Mother Tongue: English & How It Got That Way by Bill Bryson–just for fun because I like words

    Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace …One School at a Time by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin–my neighbor lent this to me and thinks it is right up my alley

    The Breastfeeding Answer Book and a huge stack of LLL publications–I’m working to come out of retirement as a LLL Leader

    The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory because I read it too fast when it first came out in paperback and I can’t remember it and I’d rather read that than see the movie

    The Blue Shoes of Happiness and The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith–my daughter and I really love this series and want to go to Botswana because of it

    Please could someone tell me what the pile of books next to your bed is called? My sister’s told me twice and I’m embarrassed to ask her again! It’s got a special name. something like cumberbander but not that obviously
