Reading round-up.

Since it's May 1 and a third of 2009 has already passed, I thought I'd post my completed reading list thus far (I've read parts of several other books and I'm in the midst of about three more). I'm still looking to get through 52 books this year; we'll see if that happens. But 20 books in the first 4 months shows a little promise to actually reach my goal.

Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch
The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart
The Taste of Sweet by Joanne Chen
The Seamstress by Frances de Pontes Peebles

The Magician's Book by Laura Miller
I Like You by Amy Sedaris
Acedia and Me by Kathleen Norris (audio book)
Wonder Woman, Love and Murder by Jodi Picoult (graphic novel)
The Novel by James Michener
Eat, Memory edited by Amanda Hesser

Piano Shop on the Left Bank is SUCH a fabulous book! And Ruth Reichl has a new book? I've totally got to check it out. Your reading habits always leave me amazed... and eating your dust.

Now of this list - what are your 3 favorites? I read Tender at the Bone and loved it. Your reading list is impressive - I've made it through maybe 4 this year. :)
