I'll go ahead and start a new topic for this for this new year. If anyone figures out where 2009 went, can you let me know?

Here's the place to share what you're reading or listening to throughout the year. Feel free to add comments on what you liked about the book or not as you prefer.

Each reads at their own pace, whether it's one book a year, one book a week, two books a week, or a personal goal you're shooting for.

This is a fun place to keep track of your progress and see what you've accomplished at the end of the year. Anything that gets people reading is always a good thing! 8-)

Share a smile with everyone you meet. It costs you nothing, but it's effects may be priceless. It will make you feel better and can shine a little sunshine in someone else's day. Who knows, it may be the only smile they see today.

My personal goal for this year is 120 books....3 more than I ended up with last year. I know it's an odd number, but hey, my parogative and something to shoot for. :D
It's fun to be able to look back on what I've read over the past few years! Here's my reads for Books I completed in 2007, 2008, and
2009
.

So far this year I've read:

1. Virgin River by Richard Wheeler
2. The Maze by Catherine Coutler--I enjoyed finding out how Savich and Sherlock got together, but didn't appreciate the liberal use of the "f" word in this book. The bad guy in this one didn't like women who cursed. Therefore cursing was employed to try and trap him.
3. Fair and Tender Ladies by Lee Smith--Loved this book told in letters that Ivy writes to various people in her life.


Working on:
The Listerdale Mystery and 11 Other Stories by Agatha Christie
The Target by Catherine Coutler
Death Comes as the End by Agatha Christie
Country Wives by Rebecca Shaw
Searching for Tilly by Susan Sallis
Miss Lizzie by Walter Satterthwait

On my to-read list:
The Rose Garden Mystery by Elliott Roosevelt
A Restless Evil by Ann Granger
The Fala Factor by Stuart Kaminsky
Tigerheart by Peter David
Still Life by Louise Penny
Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr
The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy--This one will take a while!

I have the bad habit of rereading books I like and not finishing ones that I'm not drawn into.

1 Earlier in the week, started and finished (rereading): The Tree Wakers, by Keith Claire. A strange, almost mystical fantasy set in Kew Gardens.

2 Rereading: The Otherwise Girl by Keith Claire. A very short novel (about 145 pages), more like a long short story in construction. An odd little story about a boy who goes to visit an artist friend and gets caught up in the life of a girl who died some years before.
EDIT: Finished that one, sitting on a bus with tears trickling.

I just read The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold. It reminded me of early Stephen King and of Ann Beattie, but not as good. She could have left out a couple of chapters.... 8-)

Book 3: Starting "Exploring the world of lucid dreaming" by Stephen LaBerge and Howard Rheingold.

Another reread. I really must start keeping my dream diary again ... it's the key to experiencing lucid dreams.

EDIT: finished. It's a manual to lucid dreaming; lots of examples of dreams, lots of techniques. I'm working at it.

Yes, read or listened to counts as far as I'm concerned. And of course solos count, too. That's both reading and listening to a book. :lol:

OK, I'll try not to mess up and use the original titles, since I have no idea if the books I read are translated into English or not.

So far in 2010:
Doctored evidence, by Donna Leon - I don't always love her books, but this one was one of the good ones.
Frygtelig lykkelig by Erling Jepsen (translation would be "terribly happy"): a Danish book probably not translated, but terrific book
Currently reading:
L.A. requiem by Robert Crais
Nadine
