Ten random things: January 26

Ten books my sister owns:

  1. The Race by Richard North Patterson
  2. Schooled by Anisha Lakhani
  3. Complications by Atul Gawande
  4. The Cinderella Deal by Jennifer Crusie
  5. Working by Studs Terkel
  6. A Civil Action by Jonathan Harr
  7. Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy
  8. An Artist in Nature by Robert Bateman
  9. A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe
  10. Hang Time by Bob Greene

My original idea for today's list was to name the counties I drove through on my way from my dad's house in Illinois to my sister's in Wisconsin, but it turns out I only passed through eight. Alas.

My sister, incidentally, has embraced my stated intent to read books outside my comfort zone this year, and the first three books on this list are ones that she gave me in furtherance of that project. (The other seven are titles I could read from my vantage point on the couch a few feet away from the bookshelves.) The second one probably comes closest to being the kind of book that I normally wouldn't read, though I admit it's been a couple of years since I read a political thriller.
