fitty bookz

well, i did it! i know that fifty books is not buttloads of reading in a year, but i met my goal... i dedicate this year of reading to every friend that suggested a dawn*you*must*read*this! book... i especially send a special shoutout to claudine who had me scrambling for a pen on movie & book suggestions every freaking wednesday, and to jennifer's mom who is right on the money with her book suggestions.

if you have suggestions for me, please cough them up. i need a good list for ohseven. oh, and these are good reads. if i started a book and it sucked, it was like 'uh, NEXT!' ---some were better than others but none of these suck.

Hmm... I'm trying to think of the last book I read that was good enough to recommend to someone else. Speaking of books, did you ever get your free Anthony Bourdain book? I haven't gotten mine.

I have like 5 books piled up at home that I need to read, and once I plow through those I'm going to head to the library and start on your list. I'll be armed and ready for the post-holiday-blues.
