4 and 2 halves

The books I've read so far this year are.....

The Five People You Meet in Heaven - Mitch Albom
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon
The Kite Flyer - Khaled Hosseini

Those three I read in the space of about a week, which is very unusual for me - they were all very readable. And they're all incredible books - top 10 definitely.

I've also read Ahead of the Class (after watching the TV drama) and I'm now reading I, Robot (after seeing the film).

I also tried to read Tears of the Giraffe....and failed!! I just couldn't get into it.

I have read about 75 to 100 books so far this year. I do not keep an exact count. It is not unusual for me to finish one book per day on my days off.

I think the local library dreads it when I walk through the door. I cost them a lot of money for interlibrary loans.

:eek: <<< example of local librarian
