What have I read?

Posted on this blog are two nice reading lists: one is arranged by the alphabet, the other just a hodge-podge of books I have eyed, but not read. Let's see how I have done since making those lists.

From the alphabet list, I have read:
As I Lay Dying
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
Smilla's Sense of Snow
The World According to Garp
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

The problem is that I read all of the above years ago and not one since I posted this list. Tsk-tsk!

Second list, or My Very Ambitious TBR list:
Vincent de Paul
The German Mujahid
The Giver
Imperium (at the bottom of this page is a book jacket. Please click on it for a my review.

I haven't done any better, except that I read ALL of these since posting the list. I will do better now that I have called my attention to my own reading lists. Let's call them:
Judy's Summer Reading Lists!
