In an inconstant state of reading

The fact that it's been nearly a year since my last post says much! Life has been SO full. Still ...
Here's a list of some of the the titles I've read or listened to in the last year. Of course they're in alphabetical order--I am a librarian, after all.
As I'm not averse to a rollicking good discussion, feel free to share.

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, Anne Lamott
Celebrations: Rituals of Peace and Prayer, Maya Angelou
Daniel Deronda, George Eliot
Darwin's Children, Greg Bear
Darwin's Radio, Greg Bear
Dubliners, James Joyce
Everything Is Illuminated, Jonathan Safran Foer
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: A Novel, Jonathan Safran Foer
Jazz, Toni Morrison
Literary Theory: A Very Short Introduction, Jonathan Culler
The Margarets: A Novel, Sheri S. Tepper
The Mitford Years (working my way through the series), Jan Karon
Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
The Time Traveller's Wife, Audrey Niffenegger
Until I Find You, John Irving
A Widow for a Year, John Irving
A Wild Patience Has Taken Me This Far: Poems, 1978-1981, Adrienne Rich

Oh, oh ... almost forgot two other fabulous listens:

I'm also reading the Mitford series right now - I discovered it through my coll. development class. It's great bedtime reading. What book are you on?
