Books 2 & 3 Down, 49 To Go

Helllloooooo!  I've been involved as of late with a bunch of books, but the 2 that I just finished last night were.

Please note that in this 52 in 52 project, I am not planning on reviewing books or give away any real details, just notes on how I felt about them.

2 of 52: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  A lovely book that took (IMHO) a little while to ramp up into something to really keep my interest, but in the end I liked it very much. My only wish is that we could have explored a little more of the story leading up to the present day experience.

3 of 52: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell.  My first time reading this book was many years ago, way back in the 5th grade. Though I had always up until that point been a reader, this is THE book that made me truly fall in love with the written word and where it could take you. It was interesting to revisit this work again after so many years.  I will probably go back to the Island of the Blue Dolphins a lot more in the future!
