I’m reading 50 books in 2012.

So, I’m pretty awesome, right?  I’m going to read 50 books this year.  At least, that was what I had planned to do at the beginning of the year.  And so far, things are moving along at a decent pace.  I’ve read 7 books so far and I am about to finish my 8th book.  I’ve taken too long on two of the books, but hopefully, I can make up some ground soon.  I’ll try to update this as often as I think about it. 

Here is a list of the books I have read so far:

  1. Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins
  2. Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins
  3. Superman: Earth One (graphic novel) – written by: J. Michael Straczynski and penciled by Shane Davis
  4. Wizard’s First Rule (Book 1 in the Sword of Truth series) – Terry Goodkind
  5. The Mediterranean Caper – Clive Cussler 
  6. Master and Commander – Patrick O’Brian
  7. A Wrinkle In Time –  Madeleine L’Engle

  1. If you like “Master and Commander” just okay, definitely go on to “Post Captain” and “HMS Surprise” where O’Brian really hits his stride. The first 150 pages our “Post Captain” are pure Jane Austen — which I like — and then they get to sea. Also a hint that might help (I missed this stuff, anyhow). O’Brian doesn’t always underline for his readers when his characters have challenged each other to a duel. When Jack and Stephen exchange names and the inns in which they are staying toward the end of the first scene of “Master and Commander,” they are making it possible for each other to demand satisfaction if they choose. Calling a man a liar to his face is also a dueling offense, among others.
