Little Shop's Reading Resolutions for 2010: Part 2

Terra posted the first half of the Little Shop staff's reading resolutions for 2010 last week. Let the adventure continue...

"I'm going to read A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Don Miller. His first book, Blue Like Jazz, revolutionized my faith and I'm looking for some more refreshing and real insights this year. Also Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. Because I never have, and everyone should. Or so I hear..." --Krista

"I'm going to read Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, because it's absolutely shameful that someone who was an English major and who works at a children's bookstore has never read a single book by Stevenson. And 'Tis by Frank McCourt is on my to-read list because it is one of many books I've picked up and failed to read because of my preoccupation with the enticing kids' and YA books still on my to-read list. Not to mention that regardless of what books I have sitting around, I really should start reading more grown-up books in general."  --Marcy

"The Mad Ones by Tom Folsom: Mobsters, counter-culture and crime lords with fabulous nicknames... who wouldn't want to read this book?  And The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, because I need more classics under my belt and with a movie coming out I think I should read it! I've been eyeing it for awhile." --Sydney

And Diane resolves to read, simply, "More and often!"
