    I had rotary cuff surgery back in nov for a tear and have had my arm in a big big sling for 7 weeks, and was constantly tired and its hard as heck to hold a book open with one hand..NOW I have the sling off and can lift 2 pounds!! so I am back to reading but boy DID I MISS IT lol. I am currently reading all of my daughters books (mostly R.L.Stine stuff that I read as a teen LOL) just because I have run out of things to read. I hope to buy an ereader this year (Walmart has them down to $88) and hope that I can catch up

    so for me 2012 is a read whatever you can get your hands on type of year

    • Wow! I am sorry to hear that! Glad you are feeling better now, though! Hope you fully recover quickly!

      If you are looking for good small book suggestions – how about “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, “1984” by George Orwell or “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Patterson, if you haven’t read either of those. πŸ™‚


      • Of Mice and MenÒ€ by John Steinbeck was my favorite book πŸ™‚ Now I am looking for the book “The girl with the dragon tattoo”. Just watched the movie and I really like it πŸ™‚

  2. Beverly Abrego says:

    Hopefully I will be reading this new Stephen King book. πŸ™‚ Love his writing and stories. Some recent ones I have read of his were Under the Dome and Duma Key. Both great stories!

    • I bought 2 copies, one for me and one for this giveaway and I am currently reading mine. I have to say, it is really good, so far. πŸ™‚ I have read 15-20 of his books, but neither of those. Several people have suggested “Under the Dome” to me, i need to check it out! My personal fave is “The Stand.”

      Good luck!


  3. I’m look forward to reading Out of Oz

  4. The Help and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo!

  5. Katrina Page says:

    Ok, I can’t remember the name of the book but it’s the 3rd book in the Feed trilogy. Yay for books about zombies and conspiracies.

  6. I don’t really keep up all that much with what books are coming out, because I don’t really have any favorite authors. However, since I have read most of his books, I am looking forward to getting to read Stephen King’s “11/22/63”!

  7. I am so out of the book loop right now with a 4 year old. But I do want to read The Help before I rent the movie.

    • That is definitely on my “to read” list this year, too! Like you, I haven’t seen the movie, either.


  8. deanna_boocock says:

    I can’t wait to read the sequel to Ashfall

  9. I really want to read the book ” Shockaholic” byCarrie Fisher.

  10. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    really had not thought too much about any certain book to read, but would love to win these books, thanks for the giveaway

  11. I’m most looking forward to this one! Stephen King is my all time favorite writer ever. I can’t wait to read anything he writes.

    • I have read a ton of his books and John Grisham’s because they are so consistently good. The only 2 Stephen King books that I wished I had missed are “Tommyknockers” and “Dark Half.” All the others were so good, it was worth it reading those two! πŸ™‚


      • Jason Sargent says:

        Couldn’t agree more on Tommyknockers (although I kind of liked Dark Half). “It” will always be his magnum opus to me.

        • I just finished “11/22/63” and it was soooo good! I hope to read “It” at some point this year!


  12. Debbie Lamb - DeDa Studios says:

    I would love to win Out of Oz! His books are hard reads but I love them!

    • I can’t say I have read any of his! I will have to check one out soon. I only have a couple of books in this series. I am hoping to get them all before starting. πŸ™‚

      Good luck!


  13. Danielle Papsis says:

    I’m hoping to find time to read 11/22/63

  14. We just bought “Make the Bread, Buy the Butter” and I’m excited to read it.

  16. Susan Vaughn says:

  47. Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez says:

    I’m really looking forward to picking up and reading “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami. The book design is beautiful and I’ve heard rave reviews. The sheer volume of it as a 900+ page book seems enough of an inspiration and reading challenge for me.

    Mind you, “11/22/63” by Stephen King is also a “big” book. Would like to read that, too. πŸ˜›

    On Twitter: @ZaraAlexis

    11/22/63!! I’m a die-hard Dean R Koontz fan, but I got my start with Stephen King. Under the Dome was disappointing … I hope this one delivers.

  92. Laurie Harrison says:

    I am reading 11/22/63 now and, boy, is it ever good. I would like to read Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy Bundle. My 19 yr. old son took me to the movie, “Girl w/a dragon tattoo”.
