    Here's a place to catalog what you've read this year. For those who made resolutions to read more (like I did) or just want to see how much you read in a year, this'll be a lot of fun for you.

    Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I promised my wife it would be the next book I read 5+ years ago. It wasn't. I saw it surfaced sometime late last year and seemed to be casually here or there around the house. So, taking the hint, I told her it would be the first book I read in 2010.

    So far I have read:

    The Lost Symbol - readable but not great
    The Painted Man/The Warded Man - first book of a dark fantasy series and quite engaging
    Pirates by Crichton - am reading this right now but it is slow going as I am now only reading 5 min a day. The start is not too bad.

    I've been disappointed in my books so far.
    Dracula: The Undead by Dacre Stoker

    They made Dracula a misunderstood servant of God. How the hell is he a servant of God if he feeds an infant to his brides in the original book?

    Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

    I didnt even finish it. It was too boring. I was expecting a book about terrorists using a zombie virus to be exciting but twenty chapters in and 90% of it had been police talk.

    Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

    This one has potential but may also be frustrating as hell. Its nutty, funny stuff but also very surreal and confusing. A group of WW2 bombardiers try to get out of their missions any ways they can, including being insane. I think that the confusing parts comes from the author trying to mock military procedures and their ridiculousness.

    In progress Full Moon, Book 2 of The Dresden Files
    Alas, my progress will be slowed! I left my book on the counter and my 3-year old son decided it needed to be cleaned with a very wet washcloth. Luckily I was able to get it in front of a space heater and save it with minimal page-sticking-togetherishness. Of course it's about 3 times as thick as it was before - but it looks to be readable.

    Completed
    Storm Front, Book 1 of The Dresden Files

    I finished Book 3: The Waste Lands yesterday, and I just started Book 4: Wizard and Glass. I think I've finally started Act 2 of this tale.
