It's Pouring Books!

You know the saying, "When it rains, it pours." That has happened in my book life. I've passed through a dry spell of not finding anything that looked interesting to read. And now, all of a sudden, I have a stack by my bed and a growing pile on my desk that I'll never get through even renewing them the full extent allowed by the library.  So I thought it would be good to begin a 2010 list of Books to Read for when I'm needing that next one.  Here is the start of that list.
  • Every Day in Tuscany: Seasons of an Italian Life by Frances Mayes
  • Your Brain: The Missing Manual by Matthew MacDonald.  (I think a better title for me would be -- Your Missing Brain: The Manual for Finding It)
  • Life is Friends by Jeanne Martinet
  • The Art of Mingling by Jeanne Martinet (I saw this book mentioned on the cover of Life is Friends.)
  • So Stressed: The Ultimate Stress-Relief Plan for Woman by Stephanie McClellan and Beth Hamilton, both M.D.s
  • Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson
What are some of the books on your To Read list?
