Books 2011

For all of 2008/2009, I read a total of 8 books. In 2010, I read 9 books (hurrah!). Last year in 2011, I read a whopping 28 books thanks to my non-existent social life when I first arrived in Singapore. For 2012, I do not aim to beat this record as my social life is back on track.

    I’ve been think about reading the Bourne books for awhile, are they any good?

    Very different from the movies. If you’re attached to the Matt Damon Bourne you might not like the book.
