I can never name a favorite book or movie. I just like too many and none seem to have that "I'm so special" stamp to them to make them the number one. So what have you read in the last six months? Here is what I can remember between book club and the library and I may be forgetting some.

The Chosen
A Prayer for Owen Meany
The Handsome Road
The Elegance of the Hedgehog
The Carmack-Cooper Shooting
Farewell to Arms
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl Who Played with Fire
The Girl who Kicked the Hornets Nest
The Help
The Sea, The Sea

Right now I am reading Love in the Time of Cholera for book club.

but off hand I can only remember these in the past couple of months. I have a tendency to pick up paperbacks at thrift stores and then give them away immediately after reading them. Handing them to a flight attendant as I get off an airplane is one way...

Edge of Battle
Economic Way of Thinking
Blue Threat
International Business
The Art of Possibility
Women and Money (I finally read that free download someone linked to off here a couple of years ago)

I usually forget about a book within a week of reading it, so the only way I have a list is because I started writing them down in January 2010. Here's a list since July.
