For those of you Figs who don't know, every season I post an ever-growing list of books that I want to read before the season is up. This book contains everything except textbooks directly required for my classes. Everything else, including old textbooks and papers, get added to the list. I also take suggestions for tasty reading.
I read pretty fast, and can usually do 35 - 40 books in a normal season list, and if I'm really reading I can do over 100. Usually though I don't have that kind of time, which makes me sad in my insides.
If I own the books, usually they get released into the wild unknown through Book Crossing when I'm done with them. Two of my books are BC books that I picked up from Wordstock in November and just haven't had a chance to read them.
This seasons list includes medical stuff, non-fiction, fiction of all kinds, cooking books, and of course zombies. I'm looking for a good biography and anything else that you might think would be a fun read.
I add to the list anything I find or read during this time. My deadline for reading them is March 20th, which is the Spring Equinox.

Give me any suggestions you have!
I've finished both Blue Justice and Bad Moon Rising both are junk food fiction, but Bad Moon Rising is much more junkier, and not really in a good way. Technically these would go on the Fall Reading List, since I read them before the 22nd, but I'm a cheater so I'm cheating. It's my list! I can if I wanna!
I enjoyed Blue Justice though, and would say if you're looking for a fun thriller it's worth it. I read them both while delayed in the airport for five hours on my flight home from Vegas. They served their purpose well, and kept me from gouging the eyes out of the other people waiting with me.
