I would highlight the books I have read but it’s quite embarrassing2.  Think I’ve got a lot of reading material for the holidays/rest of my life. :P

How many have you read?

  1. Okay, I didn’t read it technically.  I attempted but it didn’t really capture my attention. []
  2. Doing it anyway – talk about contradiction. :P []
