The 2011 Reading List

For the third year (yikes!), although not getting updated as frequently as it should, here it is:

(I managed to read 300+ books last year, including whatever I read to El Burrito. We'll see if I top that this year or not.)

  1. Falling Leaves, by Adeline Yen Mah (01/02/11)

  2. Beka Cooper - Terrier, by Tamora Pierce (01/06/11)
  3. The Eagle of the Ninth, by Rosmary Sutcliff (01/13/11) Haven't read this series before, but I really liked the first book. It works into my interest in Classical Civ courses in college (Greek, Roman, etc.). The book's cover mentioned a movie in the works, but after the travesty that was made with The Dark is Rising, I am very leery.

  5. Catalyst: a tale of the Barque Cats, by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough
  6. Deadly Kingdom (03/04/11)
