Dang girl, you already got one under your belt?

I was proud of myself that I finished one last night so that I didn't have to carry it into the new year (A Visit from the Goon Squad). I started a new one today (Texas Tough)...but it's giant.

Unfortunately, I am *really* feeling the effects of last night - so I spent the day on the couch with tea, brown rice, and a book! Ordinarily I'm not quite that fast. :)

Do the asterisks by the books mean anything? If so, what?

They're books I especially recommend.
