(x-posted to 50bookchallenge, 15000pages, 100ormorebooks)

I did it!!! Well, at least *one* of the goals, so far...

43.) The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch - 176 pgs
This book has been said to have a lot of cliches in it, but I think it did what it set out to do - provide a good, solid look at one man's life-lessons he'd like to share with his kids, since he won't be around to teach them himself. This lecture was done about a month after he was given 3-6 months to live (pancreatic cancer). I loved it, laughed in some areas, cried in others. I highly recommend it.

44.) Darkly Dreaming Dexter, by Jeff Lindsay - 288 pgs
The first book of a 4 book (so far) series, on which the TV show is based. I watched the first season, and have yet to see the second, but I really felt I got a lot more out of the book that I didn't get in the series. Although I think they got the *perfect* actor to play Dexter.

45.) Dearly Devoted Dexter, by Jeff LIndsay - 292 pgs
Book #2 in the series. A truly terrifying serial killer out there, and even Dexter's Dark Passenger feels a little insignificant in his shadow. Fascinating reading!

And on to #46 - Dexter in the Dark (320 pgs). Unfortunately, somehow I got the large print one, and I feel like it's SCREAMING AT ME!!! But hopefully, I'll get used to it.
