Well, I haven't been very good about updating here...but then absolutely nothing of interest has happened in my life, so I guess that's okay. I have been making an attempt to keep track of the books I am reading, with the goal of reading at least 50 books this year. So far I have managed:

C.S. Lewis - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe 224 p.
One of the few occasions when revisiting a love of my childhood has not been disappointing.

Lemony Snicket - The Penultimate Peril 368 p.
Clever, as usual. I love this series.

Curtis Sittenfeld - Prep 417 p.
Teenagers are annoying. This book reminds me a little too much of my own experiences in private school.

Greg Palmer - Death: The Trip of a Lifetime 294 p.
Entertaining and enlightening: a good combination.

Elizabeth Kostova - The Historian 642 p.
Novels about vampires are inherently silly. This one is no exception.

John Irving - A Prayer For Owen Meany 640 p.
I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE YELL AT ME.

Dennis Lehane - Shutter Island 400 p.
Predictable, but a quick and interesting read.


Otherwise, my life has been pretty boring. I've been knitting a lot, and spending much more time by myself than I would like. But there has also been dancing, and movies and fun times with friends, so it's not all bad.
