I kept track of the books I read this year at Library Thing and on Visual Bookshelf at Facebook. I didn’t pay much attention to numbers, but I read about a book and a graphic novel a week. I make the time. I take the time. I leave things undone, all so I can spend time on one of my favorite things: books. A few favorites:
Published in 2008: Disquiet by Julia Leigh, The Likeness by Tana French, Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, My Name is Will by Jess Winfield, Will by Christopher Rush.
Published in ‘07, but I read them in ‘08: Tree of Smoke by Denis Johnson, The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean, Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris
Re-reading and appreciating the classics: Crime and Punishment, Hamlet, Jane Eyre, Persuasion
Graphic novels: anything by Eddie Campbell, Too Cool to be Forgotten by Alex Robinson, Chiggers by Hope Larson, Fables.
