My Bookshelf

Recently a friend sent me one of those emails that ask you to share things about yourself so your friends can know you better. One of the questions was: "name the last four or five books that you've read". I answered the email and sent it back to my friend
as well as to several others. My friend wrote me back saying that he thought that I should share my list on my blog.

Well, after much hesitancy on my part and coaxing from two of my friends here it is --- a list of what I've been reading for the past 9 months and plan to read in the upcoming months. In the future, I'll be updating this list as a part of a new feature on
Enjoy and feel free to share any comments or book suggestions. plk
