50 books, late summer update

Another year, another list.   50 still seems to be my magic number, so I'm sticking with it.  I started the year with a re-read, which is a bit surprising since I've been so good about reading new (to me) books.

I started with Herland because of David Brin's Glory Season.  He got some of his ideas from Herland, so I thought I'd refresh my memory.  Do not read the sequel, it's not as good.

I feel good about the list so far.  There are some "hard" books, some easy, and some middle of the road.
