I love to read and I've kept a list of "books read" for every year since 1997. I remember a long time ago, when in high school I did the same thing....aiming to read three books a week.... Well, with all my outdoors activities, running, and of course work, I am lucky to achieve two books a month now.
Here is a list of the books I read or listened to on CD in 2004:
