Book Lists

The new Book a Day Calendar made me think about the list I made from the on in 2009.  Let’s do a little status check:

  1. Dec 21 – The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game, by Michael Lewis (Saw the movie, anyway)
  2. Dec 9 – The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million, Daniel Mendelsohn (Bought it, haven’t read)
  3. Sept 10 – The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11, by Lawrence Wright (No)
  4. Aug 2 – Leave Me Alone, I’m Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books, by Maureen Corrigan (No)
  5. June 16 – Ulysses, by James Joyce (Yeah, right)
  6. April 19 – The Friendship: Wordswortth and Coleridge, by Adam Sisman (No)
  7. April 3 – The Most Famous Man in America: The Biography of Henry Ward Beecher, by Debby Applegate (No)
  8. Feb 24 – Doctor Zhivago, by Boris Pasternak (Bought it, haven’t read)
  9. Feb 16 – The Gettysburg Gospel: The Lincoln Speech that Nobody Knows, by Gabor Boritt (No)
  10. Feb 6 – Sliver of Truth, by Lisa Unger (Umm… One of her books is in my shelf.  Might be that one.)
  11. Jan 17 – Wish I Could Be There: Notes from a Phobic Life, by Allen Shawn (No)
  12. Jan 16 – Forgetfulness, by Ward Just  (Aha!  Read that one!)
  13. Jan 7 – Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Austistic Savant, by Daniel Tammet (No)
Well, that was pathetic.
