Intro Post by raidergirl3

I've been reading over here for quite a while and I thought it was time to introduce myself. I'm raidergirl3, a teacher and mom who likes to read more than clean or cook. Luckily, I have a husband who likes to eat and recognizes that he needs to cook to accomplish that. I wasn't going to join here, just gleam good suggestions, but you have made so many good reviews, my list of books to read is growing exponentially. I may as well join you since I am now reading books you have raved about. I see me reading at least 6 titles and perhaps more but I'm only committing to 6. My little list includes:

  • Half of a Yellow Sun - Aldichie (already read; review at my site)
  • The Echo Maker - Powers
  • The Translator - Aboulela
  • Arthur and George - Barnes
  • Special Topics in Calamity Physics - Pesel
  • The Road - McCarthy

Some other possible books would be Black Swan Green by Mitchell and A Woman in Jerusalem by Yehoshua. So many of these great books fit in my own personal reading across borders challenge.
