The Next Book on my List

I realize that The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is a very popular and well known book, but for some reason, I haven't read it yet.  It came highly recommended by a friend, and I suppose that is why I haven't read it.  Not all recommendations are good ones.  However, it has been recommended over and over again by others, so, alas, I will read it.  And since I was given a copy, why not?  But first to finish Dexter.

I feel like I've been reading the fifth Dexter book for weeks, when in actuality, its only been a few days.  The book is good, and I'm compelled to read far later at night than I do, but at some point I decide to be a responsible adult and go to sleep so I can function in the morning.  I normally have much more free time to at night read after the kids go to sleep, but I suppose I've been extra sleepy and want to go to bed myself, especially when the kids aren't in bed until after 11:00.  So, my to read list is getting bigger and bigger, while my read list sits stagnant.


  1. I read the Kite Runner years ago and although I remember it being a good read, I couldn't tell you anything about the story. I'll (re)read it with you!

  2. I loved the Kite Runner! It was a great read and great story. I started reading it when my Uncle was sent to Iraq. After you read this one, you really need to read A Thousand Splendid Suns if you haven't already. I liked it better than Kite Runner.

  3. A Thousand Splendid Suns is also on the LONG list of things I want to read!
