Thinking about reading your way through 2014? What a grand idea! I always think about doing this, and a friend of mine said he plans on reading (and blogging) about his progress as he reads one book a week in 2014.

I'm not sure if I join the revolution and do that — I'm easily distracted by Doctor Who, let's face it — but I can at least help you all pick out some new fiction titles to advance your reading journey.

Amazon released its Best Books of January list last week. At the top of the list is Sue Monk Kidd's The Invention of Wings, a historical fiction novel set in the 1830s — and an Oprah Book Club selection from December. I didn't even know Oprah was still doing her book club, but apparently she still is. And as usual, Oprah's selection holds a lot of clout.    

Other books on the Amazon Best Books of January list are: 
If you plan on buying any of these books, remember to help out the Flint Memorial Library while you're doing it! Use this link and some of your purchase price will go toward the Friends of the Library to help support programs.

Believe it or not Danielle, there was a time in recent years when I polished off as many as 3 books a week. Of course, my house was beginning to fall down around me but that was easily taken care of just one day a week. I never watched TV much, still don't and still read at least a book a week if it's under 500 pages, amended my wayward mind and tuned it in to every-day living and am probably better for it. At least I don't need to feel guilty about letting things slide, keep things in their place and clutter at bay and all is right with the world (at least I think so:)).
