Way back in my November 7, 2004 entry of this lil' blog I shared my book list for that year. Tonight I consulted my anal-retentive Clie palm pilot and discovered I read a few more books in 2004. I also read several old blog entries and wanted to edit every single one. I decided against the impulse because a blog is similar to a diary I'm sharing with God and everybody, so I'm considering my blog a work in progress, warts and all.
I'm assuming there are fellow bibliophiles reading my blog; for y'all I share my complete Book List 2004:
1. Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns - OK.
2. Making a Literary Life by Carolyn See - Very good.
3. Kristin Lavransdatter II: The Mistress of Husaby by Sigrid Undset - Excellent.
4. Kristin Lavransdatter III: The Cross by Sigrid Undset - Excellent.
5. The Way of the Heart by Henri Nouwen - OK.
