Books 2008
Last year I attempted to list the books I read -- my project petered out somewhere in the springtime I think, not because I stopped reading but I think because I'd made my book-posting too complicated. I tried to provide a link and a mini-review to each book. Then I missed a couple, and then each time I wanted to post there were more missed ones piling up, and I would have to do them in order or not at all, then I started forgetting the ones I'd missed.... so it turned into "not at all".

I'm going to try again, but much more simply. No links, no review required unless I feel like saying something very very brief about it!

3. The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Attwood (beautiful and fascinating. I liked this book. Recommended.)
2. The Android's Dream, by John Scalzi / Scalvi (Silly. A quite entertaining romp)
1. Lipstick Jungle, by Candace Bushnell (fun book about fourty-something women power)
0. Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon (started in December, loaned by L my mentee. Neat characters and concept, will be reading its sequel next.)

I think that's it this year so far.

(Also for my own notes, misplaced unfinished books from December that I need to finish:
-1. Redemption of sombody by Eddings, left it in Chicago
-2. Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan, book on tape that got swallowed by my broken external hard drive (dammit))

The Blind Assassin, not a very new book, 1996 I think.

Am I supposed to be reading only new books?

2000, now that I look it up. More importantly, it's a good book.

2000 is the paperback. I like Atwood, I've read a bunch of her stuff.

I find Visual Bookshelf on Facebook good for keeping track too.
