There was a "challenge," I suppose, floating around the internet last year -- read 50 books in 2005. Ever late to the party, I vowed to do so in 2006-- for all I know I've been reading 50 books yearly, but I've never counted. So to keep me honest, the rundown thus far:
1. "Resurrection" by David Remnick
2. "Our Band Could Be Your Life" by Michael Azerrad
3. "Snow" by Orhan Pamuk
4. "Spring Flowers, Spring Frost" by Ismail Kadare
5. "Burr" by Gore Vidal
6. "Life is Elsewhere" by Milan Kundera
To be updated as I finish new tomes. It may seem a little self-absorbed to post such a list, but what is a blog if not a way to act out self-absorption?
