Number 17: Read at least 5 more books from this list

One more thing to cross off the birthday list before moving on to the next year...

1984 by George Orwell
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Les Miserable by Victor Hugo

Some I read in print and listened to some on my ipod. I'm loving listening to some of them on the ipod because i can put it on and listen to it while I'm cooking in the kitchen. And sometimes I spend all day in the kitchen on the weekends which means i listen alot. And it frees up some of my "reading time" for reading other print materials. Win/win.

Remember this summer, Kas, we talked about Les Miserable? I've been meaning to talk to you about that....your HS class must have read the abridged version. That book was obnoxiously long. It had all these long, drawn out sections where the Andre Dumas would go off on an irrelevant tangent. Like 15 chapters on the battle of waterloo, and 5 chapters about the architecture of the sewer system on Paris. If I was going to do it again, I would read the abridged version for sure!!! It WAS good to talk to you yesterday. Love you and miss you!
