I've just wrapped up my New Year's resolution to read fifty-two books in 2011. December was busy as usual, and I got bogged down in a Sherlock Holmes collection, but I finally squeezed in the last two during my post-Christmas relaxation.
This month I read The Affair
by Lee Child. This is the prequel to the other Reacher books, which I love. Normally we buy these the minute they come out, read them at a gluttonous pace, and then move on. This time The Pit Boss decided to download it onto his iPad, so I couldn't get my hands on it for awhile. Luckily he moved on to a "real" book this week and gave me a chance to read this one. It was excellent and answered a lot of questions from the series.
I also read The Fair Tax Book by Neal Boortz and John Linder. In my political discussions with my crazy liberal California brother (that's a term of endearment, by the way) we have discussed The Fair Tax at length. He had questions I couldn't answer - good questions. I sent him the book for his birthday and sat down to read it myself in the interest of furthering our discussions. I think it's a must read.
That puts me at exactly fifty-two books in fifty-two weeks! YIPPEE!!
How are your 2011 resolutions going?
