Every summer my mom gives each of my sisters and i list of books, often ones we wouldn't normally pick for ourselves.
If we complete the list, we get a prize at the end of the summer.
Below is mine; i would love it if you were to read along with me. :)

I. Amusing Ourselves to Death, Neil Postman

II. The Pursuit of Holiness, Jerry Bridge

III. My Antonia, Willa Cather

IV. 1984, George Orwell

V. The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde

VI. The Running Dream, Wendelin Van Draanen

VII. Rules of the Road, Joan Bauer


  1. I definitely want to read a few of these!!!

  2. The Importance of Being Earnest is a great one! I haven't read it yet, the the plotline looks absolutely hilarious. :)
