We're up to 48 now and counting. Smoke has threatened two more, which would bring the total count up to 50. I need to reread Salman Rushdie, The Jaguar Smile, so that could be 51. Does anyone want to bet that I'll get all these books read plus my backlog of Science News from the past year?

How much? Folks?

Update: We've added two books by Dave Eggers, thanks Smoke, and one by Vendela Vida, thanks Smoke. Also I went back and added various books that were on last year's list that I had not finished in the allotted time. The list is now up to 61 books. Bets still open.

Mark, I'm finally getting around to reading it! I read the first book (Too Beautiful) in no time at all, but I've been so snowed under with books since then. Tom already read it and gave it two thumbs up. Love you, and love to the Mysterious Madame X and the rest of the fambly.
