Deborah Zotian Posted over 2 years ago How many books have you read this year? I thought I was doing well having read 5 books so far this year; then I see everyone's list and wonder what I've been doing! I'm currently reading 2 books at the same time - one fiction, one nonfiction. Depending on my mood, I open the appropriate book. My favorite so far this year has been The Meaning of Night, by Michael Cox. It is his first book, and a very dark Victorian mystery. I'm currently reading Drift by Rachel Maddow, and the non-fiction book title escapes my mind just now. (It's also not that great, but I refuse to stop with the hope it will get better). I get about 45 min to an hour a day to read while I'm on the train to and from work.
