2006 Book Log

Rather than make a whole list of what I read in 2006, I'm going to summarize here in this post.

Overall I'm a little disappointed to look back at the number of books that I read this year. As I look at the list however, I realize that this may be in part because I didn't read enough of anything all that wonderful.

There were a few great books (namely, Salaam Stanley Matthews, The Zombie Survival Guide and The Total Money Makeover) and few good books (Flat Tax Revolution, Everything Bad is Good For You, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, Factotum, Lord of the Flies), but the rest were nothing special.

Here's to hoping that 2007 is a much better reading year.
