In keeping with tradition, I’ll post my best

books read in the year. This year was my Born

Again Author year, :) with heavy travels the

majority of the year, as well as managing the

Listed in the order I read them…

“A plate of roast duck, steamed dumplings, spicy noodles with beef gravy, pickled cucumbers, stewed tongue and eggs if you have them, cold please, and sticky rice pearls, too,' Ai Ling said, before the server girl could open her mouth. "I don't know what he wants." Ai Ling nodded toward Chen Yong.

'I'm not sure I have enough coins to order anything more,' he said, laughing.”
