Summer Reading

I think I’ve finalized my Summer Reading List 2011. -- see table below.

I also think I’ve gone insane. There's no way I’m going to read all these. Just not enough time. So, I’m sorting by what seems really great to what seems simply good.

The bad thing is that I’m sure a few more will be added to the list.

The good thing is that those which are available through iBooks (which is about 80%) have sample downloads. That means I can get into the first 20 pages or so without having to buy the book just yet. Oh, some of these I know I’ll buy. But others I have no idea. The sample lets me decide before losing the cash. Sweet!

Well, enough of this blogging. I have to start reading.
