3Q08 -- Books that I read

I can hardly believe that this year is now 3/4 over. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.

In this quarter, I read even more books than in the previous two, completing 37 books and 14,503 pages. I can easily attribute that to the fact that I had a couple of long car trips which gave me plenty of time to read.

69. Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert A Heinlein (2 July)
70. Sense of Evil, Kay Hooper (3 July)
71. Out of the Deep I Cry, Julia Spencer-Fleming (6 July)
72. Oracle, Mike Resnick (8 July)
73. In the Midnight Hour, Patti O'Shea (12 July)

81. Old Man's War, John Scalzi (30 July)
