A Habit of Reading

A continuing habit of mine is reading multiple books at the same time. On the one hand, I love reading and this allows me to read what I am in the mood for. On the other hand, some books get lost in the shuffle and I never make it past the first few pages. I also tend to lose track of the plotlines if I pick one up after ignoring it for a while.

The Devil's Teeth-A non-fiction tale of one reporter who became obsessed with great white sharks.

Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches From an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq-Pretty much what the title says. A lot of the author's focus is on the disparities between news reports and the facts.

Bless Me, Ultima-I am reading this in English. It is about a young Spanish-American boy who is struggling with his identity and the role of different religions.

The Truth About Forever-One of my all-time favorite books, and so I am pretty much always reading it.

Eat Pray Love-Ditto.

The One Left Behind-A library book that has sat unread for several weeks. This is one of the bad things about reading so many books.

Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom-This is the second book I have picked up by this author. (Although I actually managed to read all of the first one. I quite enjoyed it.) This book is another one that has gotten lost in the shuffle.

Three Cups of Tea-I really want to read this book, and have had it since Christmas, but I haven't put enough time and effort to be able to get really into it.

Where the Heart Is-Another favorite.
