30 / 50

So I only managed to read 30 out of 50 last year... I'll have to do better in 2008! And I'm on my way, because I've just finished one today, and bought 8 others while on a trip to the San Juans.

Book #1 for 2008 - Chosen by a Horse, by Susan Richards, 248 pages
My Review:
Even though it made me cry at the end, it was tears of love for the special animals of my own past reflected in the love felt for Lay Me Down, both from Susan Richards and from Hot Shot. It is also a story about coming to terms with damages from your youth, how we cover it up with other distractions as young adults, but then learn and grow from it as we enter our middle years.

I'd recommend this book highly, even to non-horse people. It is transcendent.

Maybe I'll do a Page Count, too. I saw someone over at 50bookchallenge had done that, so you get a bit more "credit" if you read a long book, not so much for a short one. So say each book should be 300 pages to count.

No, but I have 2 books I could send you for free. They're just collecting dust here.

Which ones are they, so I can check it out on Amazon to see if I'd like them? I'd hate for you to waste postage...

One is Sandcastles and I have to check the title of the second.
