I started a list of all the books I read in 2008. So far it contains:
The Wednesday Letters: Sweet and sad but an enjoyable read.
The Book of Names: Wonderful. I have already recommended it to my mom.
The Kite Runner: This was a good book but it was painful to read because the Afghan peoples story can break your heart. However, A Thousand Splendid Suns is on my to-read list because Khaled Hosseini has a wonderful way with words.
Eat, Pray, Love: I liked this book because it takes place in several places. It gave me great meditation ideas but there were parts that were difficult to read. However, I wish when I got divorced that I could have taken this type of journey. I am definitely putting her next book on my list.
