The Book-A-Month (Plus) for 2010
A semi-repeat from last year, when I aimed to read one book per month, I've set a goal for 2010 to read fifteen books, which seems/feels a tad ambitious. These are the first eight in my pile for the year:
This was on sale for about two bucks in the discount bin at Barnes and Noble. It looks interesting. And short.
After my mom saw that I was reading Jesus For President this fall, she thought I might like this one as well. (Shane and Chris footnote this book a couple of times as well.) Looks like another thought-provoking read.
I read the first volume, Quicksilver, in 2008. I read the second, The Confusion, in 2009. I have several trips coming up in February and March during which I'm certain I can polish off the bulk of this tome. I mean, it's only 928 pages...
My brother-in-law got two copies for Christmas and gave me one. I like free books, and a free book that intends to help you save money seems like a sweet deal, right?
My wife read this one a year or so ago and thought I'd like it. Might as well actually read it this year.
See previous statement, but substitute "a year or so" with "several years ago". Beyond the second and third members of the Bridge trilogy, I'll need to find myself another five books to read this year. This probably will present little difficulty. Actually getting through all of them will be hard enough!
