book ends

this is my nerd post about the books in my life. :) i just got this book end for $5 (yay for a good steal), but i was a little bummed that there was only one left. i like things to be even (my obsessiveness unfortunately), but at least it's given me a chance to step outside my comfort and play around with what the end will be on the other side. :)

which do you like best?

the books in the pictures are my current line up: 

committed by elizabeth gilbert. i loved eat, pray, love so much that i wanted to read the sequel. have to be honest, that it's been hard for me to get really into it. i do still plan to finish it, but right now... i want to put it aside.

water for elephants by sara gruen. i've heard such good things about this book, that i am really excited about it. i have to thank my lovely friend, alex for the first recommendation, she made it sound so good i decided to start it before i finish committed!

the accidental billionaires by ben mezrich. this is the mister's book, but since i liked the movie, he said i would definitely like the book. i think this read is pure curiosity even if most of it's fiction. :)

~ the girl with the dragon tattoo by stieg larsson. i've been holding onto this book for awhile, so it's time i get to reading it! part of the reason i have been putting it off is because i know once i start... i will be consumed! :) when i finish i have to finish the other two so those are semi in my line up!

what are you guys reading?

Chrissy said...

Well - I would go with #1!! It kind of continues the beachy pattern!

Kirby said...

Hi. I like the bookend in the first pic. I agree with Chrissy... it lends to the beach theme. I want to read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as well. I heard nothing but good things. I am currently reading Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia. It's for my book club. I took The Stranger by Albert Camus off my bookshelf and may abandon Dreaming in Cuban and start that. Still unsure. Great quote!

Kristin said...

Haha, the little man in #2 makes me laugh...but I really like #3. I think it balances the book end well! :) I've been reading a lot too lately...I get in phases where I read a lot and then funks where I can't pick up a book if my life depended on it :P

i think i like the piece of coral with the bookend the best. it looks like they were meant to go together, but in a unique, artsy way.

aaaand - i'm totally currently reading both "the girl with the dragon tattoo" and "committed!" they're both amazing so far! i'm not sure what i'll be reading next, but maybe i'll check out one of your other two books, since we seem to have the same taste in literature.

I rally like youe book ends. Right now mine are just baskets filled with junk that I am too lazy to put away.

I also have two of the books, water for elephants and the girl with the dragon tatto. Have you read them yet? I haven't had a chance to read anything since school started.
