13 / 59

Even more catching up to do this year -only 269 days to read the last 59 this rate I may have to add all those children's books I've been reading to V!

Date Book Link or comments
March 23/08 Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
April 29, 2008 Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
June 1, 2008 Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
August 7, 2008 Kevin Phillips, American Theocracy
August 12, 2008 Muhammad Yunus, Banker to the Poor
August 26, 2008 Janet Evanovich, Fearless Fourteen Not nearly as laugh out loud funny, not enough Grandma, and she still can't write sex. But not nearly as annoying as twelve. Good thing I only borrowed this book.
September 20, 2008 Anne Tyler, The Amateur Marriage
October 2, 2008 Ruth Rendell, The Babes in the Wood Part of a series, will of course have to go look the rest up.
October 9, 2008 Laurie R. King, To Play the Fool Oh no, another series that I think I can get hooked on!
October 14, 2008 Donna Leon, Through a Glass, Darkly Another on-going series, but not one that caught my interest. Perhaps due to abundant usage of Italian/Venetian terms that I just didn't feel like researching. Not a book that really captured me, as I kept wondering what the terms were.
October 17, 2008 Harlan Coben, Just One Look Fantastic read. I don't remember the last time I was so engrossed in a story. While I figured out bits and pieces, it really threw me right up until the last chapter.
October 25, 2008 Anne Tyler, A Patchwork Planet
december 3, 2008 Elizabeth George, A Place of Hiding I've heard she's a great writer and the series this book belongs to is fantastic. Let me start by saying for a novel, this was long. Almost 800 pages long, full of descriptions, but still long. Granted there were a lot of characters to hold up, but I'm sure I didn't so much enjoy the characters of this book as I did the historical information it provided. The island characters were well developed and enjoyable, for the most part, but the ones that reoccur seemed to be a bit annoying more than anything. I'll probably give this series another shot, hopefully the next book won't be another 800 pages.
December 15, 2008 Henry Porter, A Spy's Life Really, really well written. while it suffers from a main character that survives way too many attempts on his life, the characters and the story have stayed with me. I've actually found myself wishing this was a series so I could read more about Harland.
