Spring Reading 2011 Wrap Up

According to most calendars, Spring ended yesterday.  (Although I do have one that says today is the first day of summer.)  So I need to post the results from Spring Reading 2011.  All the links will take you to my review at Epinions.

Books from My Original List Read:
The KenKen Killings by Parnell Hall
The Resurrection by Mike Duran
The Brothers of Baker Street by Michael Robertson
Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward
Burn Notice: The Reformed by Tod Goldberg
Berried to the Hilt by Karen MacInerney
Twice as Dead by Sue Ann Jaffarian
To the Maner Dead by Sebastian Stuart
The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
10th Anniversary by James Patterson
Meaning at the Movies by Grant Horner
psych: Mind-Altering Murder by William Rabkin (Okay, finished this one today, but I'm counting it.)

Books Not on My List Read:
Dear Mr. Holmes: Seven Holmes on the Range Stories by Steve Hockensmith
The Sherlockian by Graham Moore
Half Upon a Time by James Riley
"The Rabbit Died" by Sue Ann Jaffarian

Okay, that's 15 books and one short story.  But only 12 of those books were on the list I started with.  Here are the books I didn't get to.

Unread Books from Fall 2010 List:
Secrets of Harmony Grove by Mindy Starns Clark
Dog On It by Spencer Quinn

Unread Books from Spring 2011 List:
Formula for Murder by Diana Orgain
Mr. Monk on the Couch by Lee Goldberg
Killer Routine by Alan Orloff
The Albuquerque Turkey by John Vorhaus

So there you have it.  I actually did get further with my list then I thought I would, especially when I started reading books not on the list.  However, if I want to finish my list again during one of these, I'll have to make a shorter list.

You did really well. Fifteen books is really good.
