I did it! At the very last minute I finished the last few pages of the 40th book of the year! Hooray! I read some really great books this year, and some pretty terrible ones, but in the end it’s always good to be reading a story. I have challenged myself to read another 40 this year and there is already a stack by the bed vying for my attention first. One of the most anticipated books is Butler’s Lives of the Saints – I’m so excited to read about all of these fabulous and crazy religious folks! I may not be buying what they are selling, but I am most certainly impressed with their devotion to the cause.
