Reading with the Bandwagon

I'm blaming my lack of posting on a lack of digital camera. I seem to have misplaced it in one of my trips to Fargo, so until I locate that overnight bag, my adventures in crafting will be documented in words.

In other news, I just picked up a few books from the library. They've all been recommended by one person or another. The first is "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins.

I know very little about this book. I know people loved it, that it was on the New York Times best seller list (I think), and that it's a part of a series. That's it.

My second book is "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Steig Larsson.

Yes, I realize that both of these book are super popular, and I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon, but I want to see if I'm missing out on anything profound. What makes a bunch of people decide to love a book, to buy that book? I'm hoping to figure it out and maybe discover a few new writing styles along the way. I read the intro and part of the first chapter of this one on Jake's kindle and I was less than intrigued. Let's hope I get sucked in soon.

The last book I checked out was "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac.

This book mysteriously "disappeared" from the library over a year ago when my friend and neighbor, Kayla, fell in love with it. It's time to see if the beat generation has any insight on my quarter-life crisis.

So that's all that's new. Three books and a wedding this weekend. Maybe I'll find my camera by then and be able to do a What I Wore piece...and maybe I'll be holding my library books.
