The Book List

It’s going to be a rough week. My parents just moved to Colorado, the husband will be in Salt Lake City for work and the neighbors I was hoping to bug all week to curb my loneliness are leaving for San Diego today.

So, I’ve made some big plans for the week – to read. I haven’t read nearly as much as I would have liked this summer and since things are finally settling down (as much as they can) I’ve decided to make this week a good start, a book week. So, I share with you my lofty list:

Classy, Derek Blasberg (see my last blogpost for a taste of this incredible, hilarious book; absolutely a new classic)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, J.K. Rowling (got inspired to read the series again after the last movie)

The Old Man and The Sea, Ernest Hemingway (a timeless book that should have been read long ago)

Y: The Last Man, Brian K. Vaughn, Pia Guerra, Jose Marzan, Jr. (finally making good on a promise to read this graphic novel)

The New Rules of Marketing and PR, David Meerman Scott (professional development)

Though it may seem like a lot for a week, I’m about halfway through two of the longest books on the list and I’m determined and excited (and I’m a fast reader!) My reviews will come in a week.

What’s currently on your book list?
