Thought Bubbles...

musings, rantings, and what-have-you, about my own small part of the world, and my 'sometimes' not so-ordinary life...something to read and reflect on, and which hopefully will bring a smile to your face... :)

Of the 65 selections, I own 4 of these books but not yet read them. As for those which I've read, I have to shamefully admit that I've only read ONE! "Anna Karenina" which I don't even remember now. I think I read it waaaay, way back in high school. I really have to work on my TBR (to be read) pile! I'm reading "Where the Heart is" now. Just a few more days, and i can cross that book off my my TBR list.

As for "New Earth", I saw one of Oprah's shows and they even have an online class discussing the "New Earth". Hmmm… piqued my interest. Will have to check that out next time I'm at the bookstore.
