Reading lists

I’ve tracked my reading for a long time, but I fell off the wagon this year.  As I lay there in the road, watching the wagon roll away in a cloud of dust, though… I kept reading.  So after June there’s just a list of what I can remember reading this fall.  It’s good enough.  Time to start again, as I do.

I’m still not reading deep fiction, or nonfiction, as I once envisioned I would.  And I’m okay with that.  This year I devoured the entire Honor Harrington series, and rediscovered my love of vampire fiction with Kim Harrison and Patricia Briggs (though, given that I think Harry Dresden is the same beast in a different duster, I’d rather describe it as paranormal criminal suspense fiction), and have continued my adoration for both Steven Brust and John Scalzi.

What was your best read of 2008?


  1. “Playing For Keeps” by Mur Lafferty was the most entertaining book I read this past year, but “slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations” by Nancy Duarte was the most educational.


  2. My favorite book of 2008 was Kate Atkinson’s “When Will There Be Good News?” A little bit mystery, a little bit literary fiction — so great. (Also a little bit more entertaining than “Reference and User Services: An Introduction,” but only a little. 🙂 )
