2010 Reading List

You may remember that last year I posted my 2009 Reading List. Well, it didn’t go well.  I started with a list of 14 and read exactly four of the books on the list (1776, Northanger Abbey, Shattered Dreams, and A Thousand Splendid Suns).  I did read several other books, but they weren’t on the list so they don’t count.

My theme for this year’s reading list is “2010 try, try again.”  So, below you will find the latest reading list which includes some of the books from last year and some new ones to replace the ones I am no longer interested in reading (at least for now).  I would like to give a special thanks to my boss, Jeff Henderson, from whose list I stole several of these ideas.  The big difference is that he has 46 books on his list and will actually read all of them, and I have 18 on mine and will struggle to finish.  Hopefully my new Kindle will help me out!
