Karen Beth's "new" year

As a first-year Ph.D. student, a first-year adjunct instructor at a college, a bride, a new aunt, and recent transplant to a different state, I have been feeling somewhat out of my head (out of my league? out of my gourd?) about the many changes that have occurred in my life this year. I am loving most of this new-ness (especially being married to my wonderful husband Scott!)...but I must admit that I feel nervous about everything I've tried to take on in the academic world so suddenly. This is where my books come in. :)

Karen Beth--how could you be blogging for a month and not tell me! It's funny because I almost sent out an email to you gals about the challenge, but no one has ever responded about my blog (although it's been months since I've sent a link to anyone), so I wasn't sure how interested anyone was--even though you are all bookies!

I'm so glad you're in for the challenge, and your bonus picks are great! I prefer Anil's Ghost to The English Patient, but still liked it (loved House of Sand and Fog). Anyway, I can't wait to browse around tonight when I get home from work (I saw your comment via email an hour ago and have been sitting on the edge of my seat since).
