So, back in January I posted my reading list for 2010. I had 18 books on the list. For some of you, that’s a leisurely weekend of reading. For me, that’s an undertaking! So, we’re a little halfway through the year and here is where I stand.
So far I’ve read 5 books total, essentially 1/3 toward my goal of 18. I’m really not sure I’ll hit 18, but I still think I can kick it in high gear and get pretty close. Unfortunately, of the books on my 2010 list, I’ve only read 2, Orange and Mad Church Disease. I’m starting Parenting Beyond Your Capacity this weekend (another book not on my list), but I hope to hit my list again next.
I know a lot of you have read the books on my list. Based on what you’ve read, what book should I read next? Below is a little poll. Whatever book gets the most votes, I’ll read it next. I was going to suggest comments on what book needs to be on my list, but I think I just need to focus on the 16 I haven’t read next. Maybe next year I’ll crowdsource my reading list.
Okay, vote below (you can vote for more than one book… just to make it interesting). I’m anxious to know what I’m going to read next.

I’ve haven’t stuck to my list either. I think about 90% of what I’ve read wasn’t on my list at the beginning of the year. One of those was Donal Miller’s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. If you haven’t read it, and you’re looking to stray from your list again, it’s a great read. It’s captivating and very thought provoking.
I skimmed several chapters of Freakonomics. It was…meh…but I also wasn’t reading it with a specific purpose in mind, and nonfiction isn’t my fave…so maybe I am not the best judge.
