It's been awhile, and I haven't read much....

13. Beginning Jana EE 5 Platform, by Kevin Mukhar and Chris Zelenak. Distributed Systems Concepts and Design, by Coulouris, Dallimore, Kindberg (paper) These are school books, so I only read bits and pieces. I'll count them both as 1.

12. The Graveyard Book, by Niel Gaimon (paper) Sort of a Jungle-Book-in-a-graveyard story. Aimed more at young people. I enjoyed it.

11. The Dirty Girls Social Club, by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez (audio) Six Latino women with very different lives and perspectives. Enjoyable. I recommend the audio, so you can hear the accents.

10. Headhunters, by Jules Bass (audio) Four women from New Jersey decide to go to Monte Carlo and pretend to be billionaires. Good cheesy fun.

.......

As an interlude, today I remembered a book which I had read in 2010 ("The Year Of No Tracking"). It was loaned by my brother. Called Homer & Langley: A Novel, by E.L. Doctorow. It's the kind of book where the story sticks with you for a long while, and you keep thinking about the characters. They each had these amusing little foibles, which eventually took over and destroyed them. Disturbing - but recommended.
