Remember when I started off the year last year with a big fat zero for the number of books I finished reading in January?
Yeah, I was hoping I wouldn't repeat that accomplishment this year. And luckily I didn't. In fact, I finished three books in January for a total of 1,226 pages. Not a bad improvement over last year's zero books and zero pages. Of course I'm neglecting to mention that I was midway through Gone With the Wind and it only took men a month and a half to finish it.
What'd I read this month? Have a look:
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Comeback 2.0: Up Close and Personal by Lance Armstrong
Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald
There was a lot of hype surrounding Dan Brown's latest book. I liked the first two (Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code) so I thought I'd give The Lost Symbol a read. It was good, don't get me wrong, but it pretty much followed the formula of the first two - secret cult-like organization with a mystery to solve and putting the pieces together while some group/person is after Robert Langdon and his female sidekick. But it was an entertaining read.
