So here's the new "books read so far list" (without the annotations, so you don't have to read them all over again).

  27. Second Act by Barbara Barrie
  28. The Guizer by Alan Garner

As I was cutting and pasting that, I started to think, "Hmm. Maybe I should do separate fiction and non-fiction lists." I think I am insane. Since I've been reading so much non-fiction lately, I'd be hard pressed to read 50 books of fiction. Maybe. Besides, I wouldn't know whether to put The Guizer under fiction or non.
