Book List 2011

To date I have read 23 books this year which is much better than last year (I think I only read 18).  Many of the books I read this year were long too (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series).  I also downloaded some books onto my iPad this year for the first time (using eBooks and the Kindle app for iPad).  While I do enjoy the electronic format, nothing beats the smell of the paper when you have your nose in a book.

Here is my list for 2011:

  1. The Art of Racing in the Rain, Garth Stein, 336 p *also read previously
  2. The Book Thief, Markus Zusak, 576 p
  3. Rough Country, John Sandford. 400 p

  6. Little Bee:  A Novel, Chris Cleave, 304 p

  1. The story of Enzo & his master, their life & how we humans can make it complicated. Enzo the dog is a great story teller & tells the heartwarming story of his master's life, love & loss. What a wonderful love story with an Indy car racing touch.
