10) Guardian Of The Darkness (Moribito) by Nahoko Uehashi with the kids
11) The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin: A really great book to help you get out of a rut or to challenge you to just help yourself be happier.

15) Never Eat Alone Keith Ferrazzi - skimmed the last part as it became a bit redundant
16) All the Pretty Horses- Cormac McCarthy

18) House of Prayer No. 2: A Writer's Journey Home -by Mark Richard- This was such a beautiful book. Written in a very interesting way, a second person memoir. It was so easy to totally launch myself into the story. I work full time and have two very busy children and an injured husband AND I still read it in three days! I just loved that it is a true story, but there were certain parts of the story where I was just thinking, how could anyone live through that! I cannot wait to read another one of his books.
19) "Hard Times Require Furious Dancing" by Alice Walker. What a treat. I read these poems while I sat in the library. She says so much with often very few words.
20) "Light In August" William Faulkner
