I’m horribly overdue on chronicling the books I’ve been reading — I haven’t posted anything since before our trip, so I’ll probably miss some now, but here are some of them:

The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World
by Michael Pollan
(Dad and Jane gave me their copy months ago and I finally got to it on the trip and really enjoyed it)

The Labyrinth
by Kate Moss
LOVED it

A Letter of Mary: A Mary Russell Novel
by Laurie R. King
I meant to grab the one where they go to the Middle East, but instead this one follows that one and deals with a mystery left to them by a friend they had met there

Bandit Queen Boogie
by Sparkle Hayter
great fun, 2 friends traveling around Europe

Maximum Ride : The Angel Experiment
by James Patterson
Can’t believe I haven’t read this series before — will now have to go read the sequels, left it for Hanna to try

Tortilla Curtain
by T.C. Boyle

Zen And the Art of Crossword Puzzles: A Journey Down And Across
by Nikki Katz

shoot, wish I could remember any others… they may come back to me.

Now I’m reading Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) by Ann Brashares and have a pile of crossword puzzle related books that I’m hoping to read before Puzzle Day… but I’ve been doing event organizing instead of much reading the last few weeks… I do have some long plane rides coming up in March to stock up for though…

Update: oops, one more I remembered just now:
The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession
by Susan Orlean
