50 books in 2009 - update 8

Here's update 8 for my "50 books in 2009" goal.

Eek! So little time left! I'm definitely not going to make 50 books, but it I'm still going to get as many read as I can with the time I have! My work schedule has been a lot more demanding than I had expected and has seriously cut into my personal time.

If you have any favourite books that you think I might enjoy, please leave me a comment or send me an email! I'd love to hear some of your book suggestions as I'm always look for something good to read! And there's always a goal to be made for next year! :)

What a great idea. I may have to do this in the new year. Although I'm pretty sure the only way I could reach 50 is to include the boring academic books I have to read.
