At the beginning of the year I decided to keep track of the books that I read. The first month I expected that I would read 1 and maybe started in on a second. That first month I believe I read 4 or 5 books! I wasn't trying to read more because I was keeping track. It's just how it transpired. The list below are the books I have completed to date. This doesn't include a handful of books that I started but was unable to finish. It also doesn't include a bunch of non-fiction cookbook and reference type books. I'm headed to the library today to pick up my hold copy of Wild by Cheryl Stayed.

Delores Claiborne: I've recently discovered some old Stephen King books. I only seem to enjoy the ones that aren't all about supernatural, crazy science fiction stuff. I really enjoyed this book except I wish she had kept her mouth shut just a bit! I wanted her to "get away with it".
Between a Rock and a Hard Place: This is Pat Benatar's autobiography. I picked it up once I got tickets to see her concert. The book explains why the show was billed as "Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo". Neil is her husband and they have been together making music since almost the very beginning. The record company executives never gave him the producing and song writing credits he deserved. Once they broke away on their own she always makes sure they have equal billing. She told a couple of stories between songs and I knew exactly what she was talking about because I had all of this background information on her life and her story.
My Fair Lazy: Jen Lancaster's books are just pure guilty pleasure reading. I happened to pick up her first book "Bitter Is the New Black" and I was hooked. I've read all of her books except her most recent. I'm trying to pace myself so I'm never without my Jen Lancaster fix!
