2051 I did this in 2009 and 2010 and I never made 50 yet. It may not sound like much but I read 42 this year, 1 up from last year. At least I'm going up and not down...

More books in 2011!

2051 39. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Anne Barrows

40. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

Love, love, love this book. Stirring narrative and so much insight, all from a dog's perspective. I didn't even mind the racing analogies so much after a while; you don't have to be keen on Formula One or the Indies to understand these universal truths. Highly recommend, even more so for animal lovers. :)

2051 Personally I don't buy books unless I've read it and can't wait to read it again. The Book of Awesome was one of those books I wanted to share with friends to laugh over, but you could do that more easily with his blog posts (as most of the entries in the book are from his original blog). I loved his humor, although sometimes his over-positive tone could get a bit annoying?

It's definitely a good book for a rainy day, light-hearted and TOTALLY RELATABLE but I wouldn't spend the big bucks on it. Maybe when it's in paperback?

2051 Dave, I can't stop talking about Greg Mortenson after reading this book..at first I was a little skeptical because the back cover makes Greg seem like a superhero but as I started getting into it I kept thinking, "Who ARE you, and why have I not heard about you sooner?"

I enjoyed reading it so much because a friend of mine who has a like-minded passion for West Africa has started a not for profit about 2 years ago and we're just dreaming to have the kind of impact Greg's CIA schools have in Pakistan.

What made you read the book?

2051 13. An Anthropologist on Mars by Oliver W. Sacks

Thoroughly enjoyed it and was drawn in by his objective yet intimate portrayal of patient cases.
