Once again I have hjoined the 50 book challenge. Maybe this time I'll be a little less picky about what I condsider to be a book and include comics and magazines ... well maybe full issues of National Geographic and Archaeology and comics once the story runs are complete. I don't know, it still feels like cheating to me.
Anyway, once again I present ( The List - in no particular order: )
I've only read three books from the list so far, but with everything else going on, I guess that's no a bad start ... hmmm ... maybe I'll start including fanfiction in my list ...?
On to what I've read so far:
3 / 50 words. 6% done!
1) Eats Shoots and Leaves, by Lynn Truss( From the Publisher )
I can honestly say I really enjoyed this book. Sure, it looks just like a book about dry punctuation, but not only was it informative, it was also quite funny! And not only was it an entertaining read, it has helped me with my own writing. Every time I'm about to do something wrong, I just think of the handy dandy "punctuation repair kit" that was included with the book. Unfortunately, the book has made me a bit of a punctuation nazi and I'm seeing problems where I never saw them before.
2. Time Bomb, by Jonathan Kellerman( From the Publisher )
I adore Kellerman's work and this was no exception. It's exciting, intriguin, and full of suspense, and it kept me guessing right up to the end. I love a good myustery and this was just that. I especially love that Kellerman has helped me love and care for the charactrers of Dr. Delaware and Detective Sturgis. I was not in any way disappointed by this instalment of the Alex Delaware Mysteries.
3. Heir to the Empire, by Timothy Zahn( From the Publisher )
This was a re-read for me and I liked it just as much this time as last time. It really is a pity that this series is no longer considered canon because Zahn had some fantastic ideas of where the story was going. Well, Lucas may not consider it canon, but for me, Zahn's trillogy always will be.
