I finished my Doctor Who book and moved on to one of those lovely "chick lit" books called "How Will I Know" by Sheila O'Flanagan that I borrowed from the library. It wasn't as good as others that I have read. It was set in Dublin and was about a woman who is trying to live her life with her teenage daughter after her husband died a few yers earlier in an accident. It was predictable...but not in that fun predictable way that I love these kind of books. I read it in the car on the way to Halifax, so I finished rather quickly.

Right now I am reading"The Gravedigger's Daughter" by Joyce Carol Oates. Not the most uplifting of novels...I think this one will take a while to get through. James has challenged me to read 30 books before I get to Turkey...which is like in a month. I think this is a little more than I can do..but I am going to try!!

Since I work a lot of evening and back-shifts, I have a lot of time to read. I am trying to read more than watch DVD's - but sometimes that can very hard. Right now I am reading a book in The Doctor Who series called "The Pirate Loop". My husband bought me three hardcover Doctor Who books when he was in England and I am about 50 pages in and really enjoying it. This is my first time reading a Doctor Who book but I have read Torchwood books in the past and really liked them.

I only have read about 40 books so far this year. I really need to get a move on if I want to make the 100 Book Challenge.

100 Book Challange

I decided to start a book blog because I found this 100 Book challange on Facebook. I like the idea of book challanges and hopefully will find more than just this one out there. Here is an list of the books I have read so far in 2008 (not in order of when I read them!). I put them in a list on the right hand side.
