So there you go. 🙂

42. Stress Management for Dummies by Allen Elkin

43. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

44. Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance by Lois McMaster Bujold

45. Primary Inversion by Catherine Asaro

46. A book so bad that I threw it away.  I’ve never done that before, but it was of the shockingly bad literary tradition that involves a girl who was raped before the book began who must save herself by having sex with a stranger by the end of the book.  It made me literally nauseated.

47-48.  I sent a stack of books home with Steph one day, forgetting to write them down long enough that the only part I remember now is that I only read two of the pile.  Whee!  (Maybe Steph knows…)


And that is it.  Nearly half of what I read last year.  Have I mentioned that I’ve been super-duper busy this year? *sigh*
