September Reads

I actually read quite a few books this month.  Here's my list.

The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis
Hack: How I Stopped Worrying About What to Do with My Life and Started Driving a Yellow Cab by Melissa Plaut
The Lost World by Michael Crichton
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
Thank You for Smoking by Christopher Buckley
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

My favorite book of the month was easily Hack.  I suggest everyone go out and read it because it was pretty great.  The Silver Chair was my least favorite.  I almost wish I hadn't reread it because I liked it more the first time around than the second.  Maybe that was because I was reading the whole series the first time.

You can read reviews for all of these books at my Goodreads account.
