The First 50 Books of 2006

Thursday, July 06, 2006
I am currently working on a little goal of reading 100 books this year.  Last night I finished book 50 on the list.  I am a little bit behind schedule since at this pace book 100 would be finished on January 10, but I'm close.  I'll just need a good run somewhere in the next six months to push through some reading.  It's been a good couple of weeks with some really good books.  My personal highlight of this list so far is discovering Octavia Butler.  Her work is fantastic, especially Kindred
