2011 BookList to date

As many of you know, I have had numerous travels lately with long hours in airports. Then of course hand surgery laid me up for awhile (I am beginning to type again), which lead to numerous library requests (and instant Kindle downloads).  Each book in this list has something to recommend itself and some will be reviewed in additional blog entries. NB many are the latest in series and need to be read in order. I especially enjoyed and highly recommend those marked with *.
