Argh… I know it’s not a realistic goal to blog every book I read, but the problem is when I start to just keep a list I think “oh, that one I want to write about…” But then when I want to look back & see what I read, it’s not there. So I’m going to try something new: when I’m done with one book, I can’t start another until I list it. Hah, we’ll see how long that lasts.
Anyway, I’ve set my timer and I will enter as many books as I can recall or document that I read within the past few months:
- Georgette Heyer, Lady of Quality (1972) – B+, an old favorite
- John Lloyd & John Mitchinson, The Book of General Ignorance (2007) – B, lots of fun to read (from the QI folks) but dubious research
- Garth Nix, Sabriel (1995) – A-, wow! a new fantasy I actually love! Must read the rest of them.
- Sally Hogshead, Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation (2007) – D, started & then skimmed most before the library copy expired on my Nook; more of a business book than I realized
