A Wack of Books

77. Dave Barry's Bad Habits - Dave Barry.

78. Finding Serenity: Anti-Heroes, Lost Shepherds and Space Hookers in Joss Whedon's Firefly - Jane Espenson (ed.). Not the Festivus type of Serenity, but rather the spaceship type. Essays on the show, the cancellation, one written by Kaylee and a few about atypical women in space. Highly recommended for fans of the show.

79. Crazy Aunt Purl's Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair - Laurie Perry. I think everyone in the knitblog world read this one already. If not, you really should.

80. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak. Narrated by Death and set in Germany during the Holocaust. Dark and absorbing and surprisingly light.

81. Clara: The Early Years. The Story of the Pug who Ruled my Life - Margo Kaufman. I think Clara may be related to Lucy. At least the princess attitudes are the same.

82. I am the Messenger - Markus Zusak. Book club selection for November. Very different from The Book Thief but just as absorbing.

83. A Sudden Fearful Death - Anne Perry. One of the many Monk mysteries. A bit confusing since I hadn't read the previous ones. I was missing too much back story I think.

84. The Saddlemaker's Wife - Earlene Fowler. Borrowed from my mom. Very Harlequin-esque. What I remember the most is wanting to sing Jolene every time I saw the front cover.

85. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger. Still one of my all-time favorite books.

86. The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger - Stephen King. The beginning of the Great Series Re-Read.

87. The Drawing of the Three: The Dark Tower II - Stephen King.

88. The Waste Lands: The Dark Tower III - Stephen King.

89. Wizard and Glass: The Dark Tower IV - Stephen King.
