Hey, thanks for the recommendations! I put Smoke and Kitchener on my to read list. I've been hearing good things about Bryson's book. I pretty much have all of his books on my list already - love him.

An interesting and diverse list, N. Well done on the 101!
I'm a bit jealous as I don't seem to have much time on my hands these days... don't even think I made it to 50 this year, though I stopped counting sometime in the summer.
I must pick up that Bryson book. The only one of his I read (can't remember the title) was about hiking the Appalachian Trail. I laughed my ass off...


I just finished 'The Appeal' this morning. My husband gave it to me for Christmas, figuring that after the almost 1000 page 'The Pillars of the Earth', I could use a quick read. :)


I read about 70 books in 2008, which is a bit less than the number I read in 2007. I hadn't heard of any of your recommended books, except the Grisham one. I'll try to check it out, as I normally enjoy his books.

Your reading selections are so diverse. Do you favor a particular genre? How do you find the books you read? Some, I've never head of. Happy New Year! Wishing you MIles of Smiles in 2009
