I did, on the other hand get through quite a few novels. I'm currently reading The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. Instead of a deep insightful commentary on my last list of books I will for now give names and authors. Want me to comment, anyone who exists on the internet? Leave me a comment and BAM, I'll write some insightful commentary.

Plus a few I think I'm missing.... The starred items are on the 501 list.
So yeah, I don't only read 501 books but sometimes I really enjoy them. Also, this list is not in order. I tried a few other novels, Kazuo Ishiguro's most recent novel Never Let Me Go and an international 'best seller' The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordiano but both were so insipid I was ready to burst. Prime Numbers made me pretty much go like this: ARRRGGG!!! It's all angsty lameness. Oh well.
It is Xmas time now. Here is our current Christmas decoration status.
Happy holidays. Kai out.
501 books count: 91 (Will I make 100 by Jan 1st?!)
