A Significant Portion of the Books We Read

These are not all the books. Cale was reading and returning them to the Peace Corps library faster than I could record them. Also, occasionally, I forgot to write some I read down. In retrospect, it would have been good to keep track of all the movies and TV we watched in the previous two years as well. You know you are hard up for good television when you find yourself commenting that Stargate Atlantis is soooo much better than regular Stargate. So very sad.

My goodness!!! That is a lot. I was thinking if people want a PH.D. They could get in Samoa in one or 2 years with all that reading you've done.
