|06:59 pm - More books ...|
(just keeping track of my reading for the year, continuing from this post)
8. Family Bites - Lisa Williams
9. Parable of the Talents - Octavia Butler
10. The Algebraist - Iain M. Banks
11. Light - M. John Harrison
12. The Knight - Gene Wolfe
13. Learning the World - Ken MacLeod
14. Last of the Wilds - Trudi Canavan
As predicted, I'm nowhere near on track for finishing 50 books this year, but then I wasn't aiming for that.
On the other hand, if you added up the words I've read on LJ and forums and Usenet and news sites and so on, I'd probably have read over 50 "novel equivalents" already ...
Current Mood: calm
|I think the problem with the 50 book challenge is that there is not 50 new books I'm interested in reading to be released this year. And if we consider books I've read before, then I beat 50 without even trying.|
Maybe I was spoiled by my reading my local library's fiction section from A - T  one year. I was bored. And the cute librarian issued a challenge. What can you say.
 Stopping at T saved what little sanity I had. there is so much bad fiction out there, and most genres are either horribly predictable or totally illogical.
