What I’m Reading: The Middle Place


If you are following my 101 List Project at all, you’ll know that I put myself on a mission: to read 250 books in 1,001 days. Many people scoffed at that goal – but, lemme tell you – I’m currently reading my 107th book of 2009. 107. Yeah. That’s kind of a lot of books. When the year is completely kaput, I’ll do a recap of my favorite books of 2009.

The book I’m reading at the moment is definitely in my top 5 for 2009 –The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. This book is currently selling for less than $5 on Amazon, and it’s definitely been an emotional, yet funny read – all rolled into one. I’m SO close to the end, but it’s been a hard book to put down because I’m really enjoying Kelly’s voice as she tells her story.

It’s a memoir written by Kelly Corrigan that weaves between her childhood and her diagnosis and fight against breast cancer. To follow Kelly’s journey, not only from her diagnosis and treatment, but through having to grow up.
