January 2010 Reading List

I used to post my monthly reading lists a few years ago, and I liked looking back over them recently.  I thought I'd try again this year to track what I read.  If there's a kid's book I especially like, I may post it, but I won't be listing all the children's books I read in a month since that list would easily count in the 100's.

In January, 2011, I read:

The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
Chinese Maze Murders: A Judge Dee Mystery by Robert van Gulik
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke
Stumbling Along the Beat by  Stacy Dittrich
Nunzilla was my Mother and my Stepmother was a Witch by Terry Silver
Franklin and Eleanor: An Extraordinary Marriage by Hazel Rowley

I read them all on my Kindle, and all except the last one I picked up for free.  I know I've said it before, but I still love my Kindle, over a year since first receiving it.  The fact that it is so easy to carry, I don't have to choose which book to carry with me, and that I can access all my books through my iPhone as well make it one of my favorite things.   Some books are free for just a short time, so I tend to check the bestselling free books each morning to see what I can add to my Kindle for future reading.

Of the books I read last month, I think I enjoyed the story about Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt the most.  It was a wonderful look at their marriage and I felt that it was a gentle, but fair, explanation of their lives as husband and wife.

I kept hoping The Secret Agent would get better, but it plodded along.  I guess I'm glad I finished it as it goes along with my goals of reading more classics this year . . . but I enjoyed The Beautiful and Damned much more. (But I've always enjoyed Fitzgerald)
