Happy New Year!

Well here it is, January 1, 2008. And I can finally start the books on my reading challenges. It was so difficult not to pick one of them up on the 30th because I had finished what I considered my last book of 2007. So instead I began a book that I got in the mail from PBS yesterday: Objection!: How High-Priced Defense Attorneys, Celebrity Defendants, and a 24/7 Media Have Hijacked Our Criminal Justice System by Nancy Grace. Boy, oh boy, does it sound exactly like Nancy! I got 90 pages into it yesterday and will continue to read it at night while I read my challenge books during the day at work … which I will definitely need, because it’s going to be cold, cold, cold … and that is not good for pouring concrete! Well I’m going to head off of here and pick out my first challenge book for 2008. Happy New Year!!
