It suddenly occurred to me yesterday that we were already five days into the fourth quarter of the year, and I totally forgot about posting my Q3 book report, as well as a few other things that I do on a quarterly basis. Life had been busy this summer, so I only finished 11 books in Q3, which makes a total of 39 books this year, still ahead of schedule to reach the goal of 50. Looking good.
Here are the books I finished in the past three months:
- The Burning Room by Michael Connelly
- The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement by David Brooks
- Darkest Fear by Harlan Coben
- The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King)
- The Clocks by Agatha Christie
- I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
- 1Q84 Book 3 by Haruki Murakami
- Last Year’s Resolution by Robert Lampros
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- Border Music by Robert James Waller
- The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell
The books on this list go from extremely boring (#10) to very good (#9), and everywhere in-between. The three nonfiction books on this list (#2, #6, #11) are all interesting and informative.
Only need to finish 11 more books in Q4 to reach my goal. Rather than starting new books, maybe I should work on those that I started but have not been actively reading. Will see how it goes. Keep reading…
