    Dangerous Women (Gay)
    The Name of the Wind (Rothfuss)
    Homegoing (Gyasi)
    The Wise Man's Fear (Rothfuss)

I won't make it to 50, but I like sharing what I'm reading. This year is off to a particularly good start. I've loved everything I've read so far:   
  • An Untamed State (Gay)
    Dangerous Women (Gay)
    The Name of the Wind (Rothfuss)
    Homegoing (Gyasi)
    The Wise Man's Fear (Rothfuss)
    Russian Winter (Kalotay)

The Rothfuss books would probably count for double if we were going by pages. ;)

12. We Should All Be Feminists - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Is this based on her TED talk? I did know that it has a book now!! How did you find it?

Yes, it is. I saw that my library had it, so I put it on hold, not really knowing much about it. I actually expected it to be a larger book, but it was quite short. More of a single essay in book form.

I'd also really recommend "Men Explain Things to Me" by Rebecca Solnit & "Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman" by Lindy West if you are into essays w/ a feminist perspective. They're both great essay collections.
Thanks allsummerlong.

1. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (excellent; page-turning, memorable, couldn't wait to get back to reading when I had to put it down)
2. Lab Girl by Hope Jahren (one of the best memoirs I've read in a while. Also incidentally learned a lot about trees)
3. Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (eh. Good info, but could've been condensed to about 1/3 the length)
4. Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
5. When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
6.The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee (40% finished; loan expired)
7. You are Not So Smart by David McRaney - made it about 40% through this book before giving up. It's geared towards people who know nothing about psychology/research methods. I skimmed the table of contents and realized I wasn't missing much.
8. Black Water by Louise Doughty
9. A Criminal Defense by William Myers, Jr. (Kindle First book - I was pleasantly surprised. Much better than other Kindle First books I've tried)

1. How to stay de-junked forever by Dawna Walter (1/1/17)
2. The Chemistry of Tears by Peter Carey (6/1/17)
3. Spark Joy by Marie Kondo (20/1/17)
4. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (28/1/17) I had so many epiphanies reading this :)
5. Superfreakonomics by Steven D Levitt & Stephen J Dubner (19/2/17)
6. The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene (25/2/17)

In progress still: George Orwell: The Observer Years.

I need to pick a light hearted novel next because The Heart of the Matter was a pretty dark read. Not only does the author allow you to feel the draining conditions in the tropics (heat, humidity, biting insects, decay) he also throws in a whole heap of religious guilt, death and misery. Fun!

7. The Listerdale Mystery by Agatha Christie (short stories) - silly, light 1930s mysteries to get me back on the wagon. Contained a surprising number of couples agreeing to marry on the day they meet!

Ok I'm trying this but not sure I will get to 50...

One of my New Years resolutions was to read before bed instead of watching Netflix. I've been on a "chick-book" kick lately, as is apparent from my list.

1. A lot like love by Julie James
2. Something about you by Julie James
3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
5. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
6. About that Night by Julie James
7. Just the Sexiest Man Live by Julie James
8. Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise
9. The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
10. The Gender Game by Bella Forrest
11. The Gender Secret by Bella Forrest
12. The Gender Lie by Bella Forrest

I think I will finish this Gender-Series, which I am enjoying and then start reading something in Icelandic (mothertounge) or Danish (live there) since I have only been reading in English lately.

I'm in! Moving to within a stone's throw of our local public library in a couple of months, so hopefully I can stay on the wagon since I'll have no excuses!

No standard format it appears, so I guess I'll just post what I'm currently reading?

1. Building Construction Before Mechanization - John Fitchen

Updating with a hefty list, sorry I've been so busy I haven't been back to check in! Here we go:

2. Do-It-Yourself Hedge Funds, by Wayne P. Weddington III
3. The Rational Optimist, by Matt Ridley
4. The Investor’s Manifesto, by William J. Bernstein
5. The Affluent Investor, by Phil DeMuth, Ph.D.
6. An Embarrassment of Riches, by Alexander Green
7. Wealth Secrets of the Affluent: Keys to Fortune Building and Asset Protection, by Christopher Jarvis and David Mandell
8. Basic Elements of Landscape Architectural Design, by Norman K. Booth (read it cover to cover while preparing for a test, that counts right?!)
9. In The Company of Stone: The Art of the Stone Wall, by Dan Snow
10. The Art and Craft of Stonework, by David Reed
11. The Complete Tightwad Gazette, by Amy Dacyczyn

Working on Awaken the Giant Within, by Tony Robbins. Will check in when that's done. Also queued up - A Game of Thrones (George R.R. Martin), Zero to One (Peter Thiel), and a few others I have checked out of the library at the moment.

Happy page turning, all!

PopSugar 2017 Challenge:.
1. A book with a subtitle: Waiting:  The True Confessions of a Waitress (Debra Ginsberg)
2. A book that's more than 800 pages: A Dance with Dragons (George R.R. Martin)
3. The first book in a series you haven't read before: A Darker Shade of Magic (Victoria Schwab)
4. A book with an unreliable narrator: The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins)
5. A book with an eccentric character: Fight Club (Chuck Palahniuk)
6. A book with a cat on the cover: Dr. Sleep   (Stephen King)
7. An audiobook: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business (Charles Duhigg)
8. A bestseller from 2016: A Gathering of Shadows (Victoria Schwab)

Definitely behind schedule, but Dance with Dragons took forever.

I think I'll join in. If my Goodreads is accurate, I'm up to 26 read so far this year. I'll have to list them when I'm on a computer and not using a touchscreen. :)
