My 2008, in Books

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.

    Then We Came to the End also made my 2008 reading favorites as well. I will have to start on Tana French in 2009!

    I loved Little Brother - I noticed some of the same cliches, but they didn’t bother me too much because the overall package was rad. Yeah, the love interest was a geek’s fantasy, but I liked how smart and forward she was. I’m now awaiting Disquiet on my library queue - can’t wait for it to come in. Happy New Year!
