From my 101 in 1001 list,
31. Read 150 books for pleasure, here is the list to keep track
Date Book Link or comments
January 22, 06 Freakonomics
January 23/06 Requiem for a Giant: AV Roe Canada
January 26/06 Hunted
February 5,2006 Robert Jordan, Knife of Dreams
January 24/06 The Red Tent
February 6, 2006 George Bernard Shaw, Arms and the Man
February 19, 2006 JD Robb, Naked in Death
March 3, 2006 Alexander Mccall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
March 4, 2006 Alexander Mccall Smith, Tears of the Giraffe
March 5, 2006 Alexander Mccall Smith, Morality for Beautiful Girls
March 1, 2006 Al Franken, Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them
May 6, 2006 Alexander McCall Smith, The Kalahari Typing School for Men
June 24, 2006 Thomas L. Friedman, The World is Flat, A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century
June 27th, 2006 Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner Fantastic read. Heartbreaking story, wonderful imagery. Makes you wonder how much of this is autobiographical.
June 28th, 2006 Janet Evanovich, Twelve Sharp You know, after book 11 I said I was done. Heho talked me into it, and I enjoyed it. Less of resting on the same tricks, more development of Ranger.
July 8th, 2006 Carl Honore, In Praise of Slow Considering where I am with my job, and posts I made last week, this was totally appropriate. I really enjoyed and think I'll have to review it every couple of months to make sure I'm on track.
July 5th, 2006 Phil Jenkins, An Acre of Time Very cool look at the 'usage' of an acre of the Lebreton Flats. I wonder what that acre looks like now with the War Museum being built?
July 17th, 2006 Dean Koontz, Velocity
July 19th, 2006 David Baldacci, Hour Game
July 22, 2006 Sophie Kinsella, Can You Keep a Secret?
July 21, 2006 Jonathan & Faye Kellerman, Double Homicide, Santa Fe and Boston
August 12, 2006 Tori Carrington, Sofie Metropolis Nice light read, not quite up to par with earlier Plum novels (who they obviously love) but would read another in the series
October 8, 2006 Kathy Reichs, Break No Bones Seems she's got the formula down pat. Actually there was more of Tempe's personal life in this one, and it was much shorter on the science/lab work.
November 1, 2006 Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Idiot Finally!
November 12, 2006 Al Franken, The Truth, with Jokes
November 13, 2006 Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
November 14, 2006 Kathy Reichs, Cross Bones Interesting, I'd like to learn more of the history behind this one. She either needs to really work on her 'romantic' dialog or ditch it.
November 20, 2006 Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point
November 24, 2006 Sue Grafton, L is for Lawless The usual fluff. Fun weekend read.
November 25, 2006 Sue Grafton, M is for Malice Dammit I'd already read this one! But read it again for refresher
November 28, 2006 Alexander McCall Smith, The Full Cupboard of Life
November 30, 2006 Alexander McCall Smith, In the Company of Cheerful Ladies
December 31, 2006 Joseph Heath, The Efficient Society Interesting beginning and end, several hundred pages of filler in the middle. Redundant, like someone trying to pad a thesis.
