good reads | books 17 + 18

I have a goal to read 50 books this year. I read these two at the same time. Most evenings I read two chapters of The Art of Learning and then several chapters of The List. There were lots of good takeaways from The Art of Learning. I took a few notes but I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I'd read the actual book instead of the ebook. Eh, on The List. I usually really like YA novels but this one not as much. It was such an easy read though that I easily finished.


I've been on the wait list for The Goldfinch at our library for a few months. Now that I finally have it, I'm a little unsure. It seems everyone is talking about it. I'm beginning to wonder how many of those talking about it have actually finished it! I'm very excited to read Water Paper Paint. I checked out the author's blog and her paintings are just amazing. My friend Dawn posted about The Trickster's Hat. I used to have several of Nick Bantock's books so I'm excited to read this one.
