2008 Book List  
LOL yesterday I watched a documentary about Australia and the Serengeti before bed time.  Clearly, I am very busy and important at the moment, especially since I am now compiling reading lists, which I tend to have a predilection of doing over breaks. 

Ja books read:
-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: Jonathan Safran Foer
-Q's Legacy: Helene Hanff
-Ex Libris: Anne Fadiman
-Franny and Zooey: J.D. Salinger
-Howard's End: E.M. Forster
-The Edge of the Sea: Rachel Carson
-Brave New World: Aldous Huxley
-1984: George Orwell
-The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Mark Twain
-Mr. Darwin's Shooter: Roger McDonald
-Twilight: Stephenie Meyer

Haha, that's not much at all! Well, better than nothing.  I suppose it doesn't help when the semester is insanely crazy and nearly every spare moment is spent doing freaking homework.  I've about twenty pages remaining of Brideshead Revisted , which I probably should be finishing instead of doing all this, but I don't like reading on when I've temporarily lost interest, I feel like the meaning is only half absorbed, if I read in a disinterested state of mind.  Maybe that's why I'm quite a slow reader.  After this one, I think I shall read the Curious Incident of the Dog at Nighttime, which three family members of mine have all recommended, so I think it is a favorable choice.
