Reading in 2008

I joined a challenge on Goodreads to read 50 books in 2008. I’m surprised I barely made it past the halfway mark, considering how much time I spent on planes and trains and without Internet access and regular American TV this year. Some of the books I read though are really long.

4. The Last King of Scotland by Giles Foden
