Books 2006

I've continued my push to read more books. In fact, I surpassed this year's goal.
KM will be proud, she was the one person that pooh-poohed my 8.5 book goal (up one from last year) and urged me to read an even 10. Of course, I refused to commit to that number on the spot, and of course, I am now proud to have reached it.

My 10.5 book (3,021 pages)list.
Sorry, no annotations this year. I will say I was surprised with the amount of non-fiction I read.

The 1/2. FINALLY finished Motoring w/ Mohammed by Eric Hansen in March.
1. Candy Apple Red - Nancy Bush (Feb./march)
2. Cowboys are my Weakness - Pam Houston (March)
3. Sea Glass - Anita Shreve (July)
4. The Bird Man and the Lap Dancer: Close Encounters with Strangers -Eric Hansen (July)
5. Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter - Blaize Clement (July 31-Aug.2)
6. Angela's Ashes - Frank McCourt (August)
7. In Summer - Jeremy Jackson (Sept.)
8. Electric Blue - Nancy Bush (Nov.)
9. Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance - Barack Obama (Dec.)
10. Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - Mitch Albom (Dec.)

PS: For those of you (MC) who read 5 books during one vacation - please don't judge.

PSS: My 2007 goal is twelve.
