5 Down, 47 To Go

Book #5 in the 52 Books, 52 Weeks project was Carter Beats The Devil by Glen Gold. This is a magical piece of fiction (pun intended), Gold writes a delightful historical tale, easily the best thing I've read this year. If you haven't read this yet, give it a chance. I owe many thanks to Valerie, Troy, and Keith for hyping the book.

Next on the night table is As Nature Made Him, The Boy Who Was Raised As A Girl, by John Colapinto, a case study centering on gender identity and the medical community that has only lately put the patient, and not individual egos, at the forefront.

I'm beginning to get a little apprehensive, I've enjoyed every book I've read so far this year, and would recommend all of them to others. Usually I'm more discriminating, but I'll be optimistic and mark my luck to wonderful recommendations.

I'm glad you enjoyed it & am also glad to see you are giving "As Nature Made Him" a chance. I think you will find it to be an engrossing story. Thanks for inspiring me to try the book a week test as well.

I couldn't commit myself to a book a week, but (fyi) you have inspired me to read more. I actually spent a lot of time reading this weekend.

I love to read, but my tastes are more towards science fiction and romance. Yep, drop me into the 40-something wife and mom stereotype. lol

Kelly: Thanks...

Terry: I read a lot of science fiction when I was younger, and burned out on it. From what I've read in your blog yous eem very intersting and not stereotypical at all.
