|Broke and Bookish|
I read most of this graphic biography before I went on Winter Break and I just want to finish it up and return it the school that I borrowed it from.
I've actually only read three chapters of this book but it was a big enough tease that I really want to finish it which will require that I purchase it or borrow it from the public library.
I heard this book was not only good but funny. A students asked me to recommend a funny book so I allowed him to check out the copy I was reading even though I wasn't finished reading yet. He returned it ages ago, now I just need to get back to it.
I checked this web version of an audio-book out of the public library and was supposed to be able to copy to my iPod, which I couldn't. I had to sit at my computer to listen to it which was completely irritating. I like to listen to books while I'm driving not working at a computer. I will have to just check out the print version, which is a bummer because I adore the reader for the audio version: Jayne Entwistle.
A favorite among other book club members I really do want to know how this book ends I just need to dedicate some reading time to it. I'm nearly halfway finished so that shouldn't be a problem.
I abandoned this book without giving it much of a go because I didn't think it was particularly well-written. Then I overheard someone telling another person how delightful, and well-written this book was and I thought to myself, "Come on, give it a fair try." So back on the list it goes.
I was several chapters into this compelling YA story before I had to relinquish it to a student who was looking for it. My turn should come up again soon.
I was watching a movie promo about this boy who set himself on fire. I remembered that I had read the first few chapters of such a book but never took the time to complete it. Now I want to find out what all the fuss is about.
Sometimes I abandon books for good cause. Was this such a book? I can't remember. I will need to pick up where I left off to figure out why I didn't feel compelled to complete this book, which is the first book of a popular series.
What's on your TBR (To Be Read) pile that you'd like to finish in 2011?
