Book List

**21 novels read in 2009

I've decided to return to the world of blogging. Though, I should probably use the term loosely. I'm not so much blogging as I'm participating in the 50 Books a Year fun-time madness. And this will be the locale of my success or failure.

So far, I'm not off to a good start, lol.

Here is my list. It's not 50 yet, but I figure I'll add more as I start crossing them off. I'm not reading in any particular order, either.

It'll consist mostly of books recommended to me by others, and almost all of them will be books I would never read under normal circumstances. I do have several "safety" books thrown in, by authors I know and trust to keep me entertained.

K. That's all.
