#50--and this is it!!

Title: A Wrinkle in Time
Author: Madeleine L'Engle
Year: 1962

Okay, this post will be longer than one sentence since it's my last for this blog.

I was only partway into this book when the clock struck midnight on January 31st. Therefore, I completed 49 books and came very, very close to my goal. It was a great endeavor, though I'm not sure I'll do it again in 2010. As a full-time student and TA, I am reading constantly within my field and so pleasure reading is limited during the semesters. Rather than try for 50, I'm simply going to try to read as often as possible and record the books I read in my other blog. To the few who read this, please continue to follow that blog. The address is:

I will post brief reviews of each book that I read throughout 2010 (and hopefully beyond!).

All the best!


Title: The Valley of Fear

Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Year: 1915

Another great Sherlock Holmes mystery, this story is filled with dark and sinister plot elements that kept me reading quickly until a rather shocking conclusion.
