WNT Mar 6, 2011
Whiteny Engen at training, but thinking about what book she should read next?
Even with a slew of trainings, games, meetings and meals, the U.S. WNT still have a lot of downtime while on the road. U.S. defender Whitney Engen, who got her first career cap on March 4 vs. Norway, likes to fill her time with the written word. No, not that book, but many others. In fact, Engen has read nine books since the team arrived in the Algarve. Most people haven't read nine books all year.
Whitney recently purchased a Kindle, which she now loves although it is making her bank account take a hit, but it also makes her voracious reading habit easier on the road.
Here is a list of the books she has read on this trip:
The Sookie Stackhouse Novels: 5-10
(That's True Blood in case you don't like Vampires or don't have HBO).
The Thirteenth Tale
(About a well-known author who decides to finally tell the real story of her life).
(A sci-fi novel about kids that enter something called Battle School, training them to become space heroes. Editor's Note: That sounds awesome!).
The Kite Runner
(Needs no explanation).
If anyone has an suggestions about what Whitney should read next, please feel free to submit them. She still has three whole days in the Algarve, plus the 24-hour trip home to Los Angeles.
