I am a HUGE fan of the goodreads website (check it out at http://www.goodreads.com/). It allows you to connect with your fellow readers, share your favorite books, and learn about others. This year, they issued a challenge for each reader to set a reading goal for the year of 2011. I set myself the goal of reading a total of 40 books this year. When I have an excess of free time, this goal seems completely attainable! Hopefully I will be able to maintain my enthusiasm as work and life progress. Suggestions for my reading are always appreciated! Following is a list of the books I have completed so far in 2011:

  2. I notice that there are no history books on this list! I am currently reading a book about President McKinley - it's very interesting and informative. It's called The President and the Assassin. Also, I have a book about Andrew Jackson that's awesome if you're interested.
