Goodreads sent me a congratulations you have read 23 books this year e-mail. I like Goodreads.
Just about to finish Graham Greene's "Ministry of Fear" so that's 2 books a month. No, I don't think 24 in a year is good going or anything, but one every 2 weeks sounds like a decent rate (sitting in a hospital room for 2 weeks didn't do any harm in this regard).
Top 3 of the year;
2. The Heart of the Matter
3. A Clockwork Orange
I promised myself I would move more into "classics". These three books may be the most depressing books I've ever read. I read them one after another. I put down "Crime & Punishment" because anymore despair might have given me the heebie-jeebies.
I've said it before, book covers are really pretty.
Worst book of the year? "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson.....techno-tosh. I nearly finished it, but then I threw it somewhere.
