Happy 2010!

September - December 2010 books read and listened to.

Gourmet Rhapsody by Barbery, Muriel - second book by Barbery, not as good as the first.

My Life in France by Child, Julia - great book! Highly recommended.

The Secret of Lost Things by Hay, Sheridan - strange book. So so on the recommendation.

Mary Mrs. A. Lincoln by Newman, Janis Cooke - historical fiction about Mary Todd Lincoln. Highly recommended - my 2nd book of 2010 is going to be the biography of Mary Todd Lincoln (Mary Todd Lincoln by Baker, Jean H).

Alex Cross Trial by Patterson, James - so so book, written with second author - I think the books written with another author are not as good as the books James Patterson writes alone. This book isn't really about Alex Cross, so it is not a must read.

Keeping Faith by Picoult, Jodi - an older Picoult book. Pretty good.

Bridge of Sighs by Russo, Richard - another long book by Russo, but very good. I listened to this and That Old Cape Magic (read by the same person). Highly recommended.

That Old Cape Magic by Russo, Richard - a short Russo book! Also Highly recommended.

When You Are Engulfed in Flames by Sedaris, David - listened to this on my Thanksgiving drive - terribly funny. Sedaris read the book. Highly recommended!

The Miracle at Speedy Motors:#9 by Smith, Alexander McCall - a continuation in The #1 Ladies Detective Agency series. The series is a very good read.

A Summons to Memphis by Taylor, Peter - Pulitzer Prize fiction winner. Unless you want to read all the PP fiction winners, you can skip this one.

I have a feeling I will be reading lots of books this year... lots of plane trips to do wedding planning!
