26 in 52

I resolved to read at least 26 books this year. So far, I'm a bit behind, but I'll mark my progress here and hopefully it will guilt me inspire me to spend more time reading. I'm a bit behind, but March Break is just around the corner! (Read: Hand the baby to Husband and relax in the bath with a good book.)

Wiped: Life with a Pint-sized Dictator
By Rebecca Eckler

All I have to say about this book is "Ha!" Eckler uses nearly ever cliche in the book as she chronicles her motherhood journey — the good, the bad and the poopy diapers. This is a great read when you're in the middle of raising your own pint-size dictator. It puts a lot of the trials and tribulations in perspective, with a few laughs for good measure.

By Neil Pasricha

Lovely friend T bought this book as her gift for our annual Christmas potluck gift exchange. I hadn't heard of it before then, but the concept appealed to me — essentially a book of awesome things. Thanks to my Kobo and an online promo code, I picked up a copy for $5. Some of the stories in this book made me smile, others made me laugh out loud. Husband thought I was a little nuts when I burst out laughing while reading this in bed one night, but once he got his hands on it, he loved it as much as I did.

In progress reads ...

What are you reading?


  1. I think you would like the "Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"

  2. I just read Rebecca Eckler's "How To Raise A Boyfriend" and loved it. Also just finished Emily Giffin's "Heart of the Matter." Remind me the next time you're over and you can borrow them!

  3. I read "Bitter is the New Black" last year on vacation. I think it took me a day :) I'm reading "Rescue" by Anita Shreve right now.
