Number 2

Number 2 on my birthday list is complete. I read a book per month and then some. Here's the list...

February: Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
March: Hawaii by James Michener
Obedience by Will Lavender
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
April: Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
False Impression by Jeffery Archer
May: Cider House Rules by John Irving
June: Paths of Glory by Jeffery Archer
July: Wednesday Letters by Jason Wright
August: Alaska by James Michener
September: Winkie by Who cares cause it was terrible
Don't Sweat the Small Stuff by Richard Carlson
October: Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis
November: Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys by Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson
The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
December: The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester
Tales of Beetle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
January: A Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank
Dreamweaver: Diary of the Fallen by DeMaster Thomas

I think there are a few in here that I'm missing or forgetting. Although, I do know that both of the Michener books took me three month each to read(Hawaii in Jan, Feb, March and Alaska in June, July, Aug), so they kept me busy. I also read a textbook about child development (the chapters on adolescents) and I read several books for an Alaska History course. I also spent some time working toward Number 26 reading the Bible. I have new reading goals for my next birthday list and have already started working on Anthem by Ayn Rand.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I did find out who anonymous was...my cousin in Vegas. It was the only other address that I've used all year, so figured it must be her.

Have a TON of fun on your anniversary!
