In which I make a vow I’ll soon regret

You’ve finally done it, Sickly Child. You’ve finally put me to shame. Your list of books read in 2009 is easily 74 million times as long as mine. And I’m pretty sure you could actually beat me up as well.

So here goes. Here are the books I’d like to read in the next month. That’s right, by July 4th, SUCKERS.

  • Stephen Ambrose’s Undaunted Courage (still haven’t finished it – That Guy just bought it for me on Amazon for cheaper than my current overdue fines from the library)
  • Bret Anthony Johnstons’s Naming the World
  • Sigrid Undset’s Kristin Lavransdatter
  • Cormac McCarthy’s The Road
  • Jeff Rosenplot’s A Letter from Adelia

This list is both ambitious and lazy. Ambitious because I’ve been reading diddly squat, so any list is impressive. Lazy because I used to read 2-3 substantial books a week, before I discovered that I could check out ALL of Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the library. You’ve ruined my mind, Joss Whedon, and I love you for it.
