  1. holy cow! so.. you’ve learned how to listen to books while you sleep and remember them when you wake right? lol.. it amazes me how much some people, like yourself, can read!! I just feel good that I read at all LOL…

    Happy New Year! Have a happy and healthy one!

  2. Happy New Year, Angela! Looks like you had a great reading year.

    I’ve got The Burn Zone that I picked up when it first came out and a friend recently gave me a gift of that Asimov book by Reichert. I expect it to be an interesting book though the beginning part has been a little slow.

  3. Hey, Carl! The I, Robot book gets better. The medical jargon bogged it down a bit for me too, but I was able to skim through that. Happy reading! Hope you’re doing well.

    Deslily – Thanks! I wish I could read by osmosis! Maybe I’d get through all the hundreds of books in my TBR piles!
