2011 Mid-Year Book Review

2011 Mid-Year Book Review

Early in the year, 2011 seemed promising, with four books under my belt by the first week of February. I hit a small speed bump with book five of the year, but quickly ramped my pace back up. Indeed, near the end of April, I had finished nine books, and appeared to be...

What I Read In 2010: The Year In Review

The year 2010 was not a typical year for me, in any way. There were numerous breaks in my reading throughout the year, leading to the first year I haven’t cracked 10,000+ pages in some time. Still, I read some fantastic books, many of which I highly recommend to...

What I Read In 2009: The Year In Review

The year 2009 marked a significant year for me in many ways: I converted almost exclusively to eBooks, thanks mostly to my Amazon Kindle 2 (which replaced my Sony Reader). Also due to the Kindle, I explored works by authors and in genres I would not normally venture...

The year 2008 was an interesting year, book-wise. I finished catching-up to Jack McDevitt, and am now reading his books as they are released. It also saw me convert almost completely to eBooks. In fact, it’s now my favorite platform, and my primary choice for...

2008 Mid-Year Book Report

The year started out with a bang. By the end of February, I’d already finished 10 books, and it looked like I was on a record pace. Unfortunately (or fortunately,) my new job prevents me from doing much reading at work, and at home, I’ve been reading less...

What I Read in 2007: The Year In Review

The year 2007 was an interesting year for reading, personally. In fact, I rather blew through the second half of the year, reading something like 10,000 pages, nearly fifty-percent more than the first half of the year. This year could be categorized as the year of...

2007 Mid-Year Book Report

Since today begins the second half of 2007, I thought I’d take a look back at the beginning of this year, and how I’ve done so far. I’ve read–what feels to me–considerably less than last year, but in fact turns out to be only slightly...
