The Book Challenges that Weren't: what I read in 2011

Last year I was all excited about joining two book/reading challenges that dovetailed nicely with what I had been planning to do anyway: re-read Stephen King's Dark Tower series




Unfortunately, with the pregnancy, and school, and the 3 weeks of hospital bedrest, then just taking care of a baby 6 weeks earlier than anticipated... reading just didn't happen.

Of the Dark Tower-related books, I read 4.05, but reviewed only 2 of them:
The Eyes of the Dragon, DT 1: The Gunslinger, DT 2: The Drawing of the Three, DT 3: The Wastelands, and have yet to make it past the prologue of DT 4: Wizard and Glass.

Two non-DT books I managed to read during the 3 weeks in hospital:
  • The Wise Man's Fear (Kingkiller Chronicles Book 2) by Patrick Rothfuss [was *gasp!* bored thru the first third or so, and thru the faerie copulation section]
  • Dark Jenny (3rd Eddie LaCrosse) by Alex Bledsoe [anything Arthurian goes a long way with me :) ]

So... apart from books used in class (including You Can Heal Your Life by Louise L Hay), and What To Expect When You're Expecting... it looks like I read a measly six books last year.

SIX

ouch :(

Perhaps I'll be able to sink my teeth into the books I want about the time the last Kingkiller Chronicles book comes out? :p

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
