I couldn’t figure out how else to come up with a rating unless I rated each and averaged the twenty out. Traveling Light about engaged woman traveling and finding romance. Changing People about chick helping friend and are kindling her past love. What Goes Around about man divorcing wife when she did exactly as he but she’ll be happier than him.

“Problems are patient, they’ll be waiting for you when you come home.” (p88, New York, Davis)

“What’s the jar-full-of-coins thing?…That if you put a coin in a jar for each time you have sex the first year of marriage and take one out every time you have sex after that, the jar’ll still have coins in it when you die.” (p15, Dating the Enemy, Henderson)


Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
