Decided to participate in the 100 Book Challenge, where the goal is to read 100 books or more by the end of 2012. It’s April, and I’m wondering if I’m allowed to count the books I read from January to March… I’m just going to go ahead and assume I am. If anyone has objections to that or book suggestions, feel free to reply or send a message. I love getting mail.
4. Ask Me Why I Hurt, Randy Christensen
Doctor’s memoir of the decade he spent treating Arizona’s homeless youth out of Winnebago.
3. Cutting for Stone, Abraham Verghese
Coming of age story about twin brothers born of a secret relationship between an Indian nun and a British surgeon in Ethiopia.
2. Freedom, Jonathan Franzen
Epic story about a suburban couple dealing with dreams, temptations, love, and loyalty.
1. Cold New World, William Finnegan
Journalist’s account of four families in communities across America, and the challenges and decisions that American teenagers living in poverty face.
Yes, I do realize at the pace I’m going, I’m probably not going to make it.
I’ll have to read a little faster… either that, or pick some skinnier books.
