Books read in 2011

  1. Alone by Lisa Gardner

That’s it.  We’re almost finished with the first quarter of 2011 and I’ve read one book.  Pitiful!  It was a good book but it wasn’t even in book form.  It was via the Kindle app on my iPhone.   I blame it on how busy I’ve been and the absurd amount of magazines that arrive in my mail box every week.  Last Spring I had some airline miles I needed to get rid of (not enough for a ticket) so I used them to get magazines.  I ordered everything they had that was in English.  We get Dog Fancy, Cigar Afficianado, the Wall Street Journal, Time, Glamour, Lucky, and on and on.  We get FOUR different Golf magazines!  CSP hasn’t played golf in like a year!  I pass on a lot of our magazines and CSP & I race to read the rest.  We’re only renewing one subscription for him (Bloomburg Business Week) and one for me (Real Simple) so I’ll be back on the book reading bandwagon soon!
