2009 book 185

Wow, I'm gonna crush last year's book record of 205 for sure! This time last year, I was only at like 135.

Michelle Huneven's Blame
I don't get why book jackets give away every little thing that happens in a book. The first thing that happens in this one--which impacts everything that follows--is that an alcoholic history professor is arrested for killing two pedestrians with her car. So then she goes to prison, and gets sober, and has to learn to live with herself. And other stuff happens that the jacket should just not tell you, b/c even when it's being oblique, it's so easy to guess what's going on. My recommendation: read this book, and avoid the jacket. A-.
