books read in 2007

i like books and i like making lists. so i have an ongoing list of which books i have read over this year. i had made a new year's resolution of reading books cover to cover instead of my usual reading until i was bored of the book and starting a new one. here is a the list of books read in 2007 thus far. i plan on reading a few more books so i will post those later. maybe not. note: these are just recreational books not including class books or anything.

Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini)
The Great Divorce (C.S. Lewis)
Everything is Illuminated (Jonathan Safran Foer)
A Thousand Splendid Suns (Khaled Hosseini)
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safran)
The City of Joy (Dominique Lapierre)
A Wrinkle in Time (Madeleine L’Engle)
*Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith (Anne Lamott)
*The Namesake (Jhumpa Lahiri)
*A Swiftly Tilting Planet (Madeleine L’Engle)
*The Heavenly Man (Paul Hattaway)
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (Lisa See)

no, i wasn't bragging. if i were to brag the subject line would have said "booyah" then i would proceed by asking people if they wished they were more like me. but clearly i left that out.

i just like making lists of accomplishment. when i make things to do lists i mix in a lot of small easy things so i have more to cross off and feel better about getting things done.

for example:
make bulletin
wake up
brush teeth
make flyer design
put on my shoes
make t shirt design
take test....etc.
