I’ve been keeping a Reading Log since late 2008. And when I started trying to organize all those Reading Logs in the blog archives, I realized I was pretty inconsistent about sharing them. There are entire months unpublished, although (I promise!) I was still keeping track of what I was reading.
So now, mostly for my own organizational sanity, I thought I’d share some of those Lost Reading Logs–and then I can fill in the gaps of my archives. The first logs I kept were for my purposes only, so they’re short and sweet. I hope you enjoy my thoughts, and maybe get some book recommendations!
HB = Hardback, PB = Paperback, AB = Audio book, K = Kindle.

Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities, by Alexandra Robbins (B-)
Lost interest towards the end, but in general an interesting topic. Characters got confusing. Didn’t learn anything new, but conclusions seem accurate. Ok.
Operating Instructions, by Anne Lamott (A+)
A very sad, funny, satisfying re-read. Made me think of my mom a lot. Love Anne Lamott’s real life more than her fiction.
Mary Modern, by Camille DeAngelis (C+)
Audio book for the commute. Narrator drove me crazy insinuating emotions I wouldn’t read into character’s dialogue. Very interesting premise, but sketchily written.
Charlotte’s Web, by E.B. White (A+)
So glad I finally read it! Wonderful characterization, so much more vivid than modern children’s lit. Loved it.
Let’s see… at this time in my life, I was two months into my first job after college as a Media Specialist in an elementary school. I was probably going crazy at this point, trying not to be frazzled to death, ha! Maybe it shows in the boks I was reading – a bit all over the place, from non-fiction to children’s lit to audio books.
So that’s what I was reading in August 2009! Anyone remember any good books from that year?
