50 Book Challenge for 2005

I am a recent convert to Blog of a Bookslut, which has links and notes to all sorts of literary goings-on by Michael Schaub and Jessa Crispin. At the beginning of the year, Crispin noted that there was a 50 book challenge for 2005:

“The idea, of course, is to read 50 books in 2005 and blog about them either in this livejournal community or on your own blog.

I thought, “What a great idea,” and have spent six weeks trying to get around to it. I’m doing the last six weeks retroactively. I’ll try to keep the reviews short; I’ll say it in a sentence, if I can.

1: Swordspoint, New York: Tor Books, 1989. A swordfighting fantasy in which men sleep with women and men, but there isn’t a word for it; it’s just what people do. Quick and fun, but not without literary merit.
