Hello, 2011 Saturday, Jan 1 2011 

Hi Readers, or Reader,

I don’t know who  reads this, but if you do, I hope you are enjoying what you find. As luck would have it, my family and I are at the library because it is only place we are allowed to use the internet. Long story… and not productive to my blog by any means. So, I am currently reading Angelology by Danielle Trussoni as previously mentioned–slow, but really good. Despite this, my family does not exactly encourage productivity. I don’t mind because I never get to see them… but I wonder if I will finish the books I checked out in time. In the hope of picking myself up out of a rut, I bring you the Reading List of 2011. I feel that this list is fairly  different than 2010–not only more manageable, but also the tones and themes presented in each novel. So… you know the drill, want more information about a book? Click on the title and you’ll be directed to Amazon!!

Many well wishes,
Nolaleigh
