Another year, another book count and retrospective post. (Note that this year I merged blogs; Quo Legatis was the old name for my reading blog.)
An all-time* reading total record and a spectacular recovery from last year! Somewhat helped by 3 cross-country trips this summer-fall … got just about two books read while sitting on airplanes each trip (one outbound, one inbound).
(*since I began this blog … pretty sure I read much more in years past when life was not so busy.)
My best books of the year:
Other recommended books:
Nothing to Envy – North Korea is a horrible place. ‘Nuff said.
A Short History of Nearly Everything – a fun history of science (fun? science? yes!)
The Islanders – just a little bit weird … basically a collection of chapters from many good (non-existent) novels
Predator – because I am an engineer and liked the story of overcoming challenges to create something useful. And missiles.
House of Suns – lots of interesting future history and a decent story
