Winter Break Reading List
Okay so I've had about four and a half days now to recover from those end-of-semester shenanigans like final exams, final papers and getting up at five in the morning to write papers. All that silly stuff is behind me, and each semester I find myself vowing that the next one won't be like that. I'll be able to manage my time better, I'll take more manageable classes--the stress of finals won't even be a thing. Ha.
But now I'm looking forward to four wonderful weeks of winter break. Days filled with lots of baking, barking contests with Doc and Mack, catching up with friends over hot chocolate and, of course, good reading.
I am always pretty ambitious with my reading lists for school vacations, but let's see how much of this I can get through...
The first on the list was A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. However, a few days ago, Audible offered its subscribers a holiday gift--a free audio book of one of Dickens's Christmas short-stories. So I think this year I'll be spending the days before Christmas listening to The Cricket on the Hearth. Audible calls it "a delightful vision of Victorian Christmas" -- I can't wait. I think I'll start listening tonight.
I still have to finish The Book Thief -- it's very good so far and I would love to see the movie soon!
Getting from College to Career by Lindsey Pollack. Three semesters of college to go. Time to really start prepping for the real world.
Expecting Adam by Martha Beck. It's been recommended to me so many times.
Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
All of the October, November, December and January issues of Glamour, Marie Claire and Women's Health. I have a pretty nice pile right next to my desk. Oh, did I mention I still have some issues from last year that I haven't gotten through?
