Kat said...

I keep seeing this list everywhere. I think I need to make up my own. With things that I have actually done. But I keep getting side tracked by all the things that I still want to do!

And how fun that you started a book club. I am in two...and started one of them. What are you reading now??

Kathi said...

Kat...you'll get a laugh to know that after 2 years in the book club that I started...I dropped out!!! We ran it so that whoever was hosting got to pick the next book....over the years..the mix of people changed and we kept reading classics. I'm all for a classic now and then...but also love my best sellers!!!

I just read The Shack...great book.. you must read it if you haven't already. I am now starting The Art of Racing in the Rain. My hubby just read it and said it is really good. What're you reading?? I'm always looking for a good book!
