December 30th

Tomorrow is the last day of the year, have you done everything  you wanted to do?  I did more than I thought I would.
I went to Ohio, helped Jo move her brother to a nursing home here, went to California, never expecting that, how cool is that!
Children have been born, people have died, amazing things have happened this year, one of them being that our Soldiers are finally out of Iraq, yay!
I read alot of books this year, some of the more memorable are:

A Child al Confino: The True Story of a Jewish Boy and His Mother in Mussolini's Italy :: Eric Lamet

A Discovery of Witches :: Deborah Harkness

Gertruda's Oath: A Child, a Promise, and a Heroic Escape During World War II :: Ram Oren

The Seventh Witch (Ophelia and Abby, Bk 7) :: Shirley Damsgaard

True Crime: Illinois :: Troy Taylor

Anne Frank: A Hidden Life

I know I read more than this, but these are the ones that pop out at me as I go through my list.  Im in the middle of one book, No Surrender by James T Sheerhan, but its about a man who during WW2, on D-Day he was captured, and he and a buddy escaped, and his adventures getting back to his team.  I will most likely finish it either tonight or tomorrow.
As you can tell, I read alot of WW2 books, its my favorite subject, and it honestly doesn't matter the exact subject, as long as it happened between 1930 to 1945, I will read it.  Actually anything that happened between 1900-1950 is one of my favorite time periods, but then I also like the Revolutionary era, and how the US became the States.  And I also like the Civil War era,, its history, I will read it, lol.
Tomorrow I will do a recap of news, people who died, and things that happened in the year.
