Confessions of a Fauf

Faufy Baggins

It's February 4, which means that Fauf's next book is well underway. She has decided to do something a little insane: read the Lord of the Rings trilogy for Feb--April. It's been on her list for years, and now she's finally dedicating to the daunting task (made more daunting by the fact that all three books are put into one large heavy book which makes it appear more intimidating than it already is by itself.) Anyways, there you have it. And this will probably be the last blog about her New Year's resolution for a long time, being that it will be months before she sees the light of the last chapter.

Onto other topics: I think it's time to form a book club or a writer's club. I took one step towards that by signing up for goodreads.com, a website dedicated to readers, etc. Great site! So are there any other avid readers or better yet, writers who want to get together and have pondersome conversations about these topics? Just throwing it out there...

Amy Daniel and I have yearly attempted to start a book club. And yearly it has failed. I'm all for getting one going. Just sign me up!

And goodreads really does rock everyone. Go sign up. And add me as a friend. :)

I'll join a book club if it's at the beach and you pay me money for every book I read.

Try these three, if you haven't read them yet: Redeeming Love,by Francine Rivers, The Phantom by
Susan Kay, and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak...The first is the classic Christian women's
western and romance-adventure book, the second is an incredibly different twist on the phantom of the opera
(comparable to wicked and oz), and the third is an
exciting and beautiful story of a young girl in nazi germany, based on her grandmother's real life adventures. All 5- Star books.
