I'd really like to accomplish this one. So far, I'm off to a good start.

I'm almost positive I won't reach 50, but I'll give it a whirl anyway.

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
2. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer - boy, is Bella dense. And I had to laugh at the thanks to Muse in the author's acknowledgments.

Any guesses what is next? :D

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
2. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
3. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
4. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer

I actually liked the last one best. Maybe because I could make them older in my mind and not 18. Harry Potter is still better, though, and Diana Wynne Jones still writes the best books (with Robin McKinley in a close second).

1.  American Wife - Curtis Sittenfeld (hmm.  Reading a 500+ page adult novel - as opposed to a 200 page young adult novel - takes more time to finish!)

2 Vicki Myron - Dewey - The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World
This is an extremely heartwarming and uplifting true tale about a library cat who charms the bejeeebus out of some townsfolk in Iowa. You know what the ending will be before you get halfway through the first chapter, but don't let the inevitable sadness distract from what's inbetween. Lovely little book.

yeah, it's that inevitable sadness that has thus far prevented me from reading this one.  I keep picking it up at the library and in bookstores, and saying 'no!'

1. The Year of Living Biblically - A.J. Jacobs - Next time I go the bookstore, I'm going to check if this is shelved under humor, religion or self-help since its definitely all three.
