The whole reading queue idea

I kinda failed at this for 2006. Before going back (if I do) and editing that post (link in title) I only have two books listed as being completed. And that was updated April 12.

My goal was to get me to stop buying so many new (to me) books (accomplished, more or less) without cutting back on the actual reading I was doing (failed miserably.)

From a 12/31/05 update from the first one:
UPDATE: At the end of 2005 there are 58 books are currently in the queue (this includes no in-process) and there are 6,558 pages of finished reading through 23 books (12/31/05.)

The list for 2006 (in little order)
  • Murakami, Haruki: Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
  • Garland, Alex: The Coma - I have no real comments, actually. I liked how it started and it was quick enough that it wasn't a problem to finish.
  • Morgan, Richard K: Altered Carbon
  • Johnson, Denis: Resuscitation of a Hanged Man
  • Burgess, Anthony: M/F
  • Brooks, Geraldine: Year of Wonders
  • Egan, Greg: Diaspora (I see it listed for 2005, this was actually Distress)
  • Acker, Kathy: In Memoriam to Identity
  • Bartheleme, Donald: The Dead Father
9 books. 2481 pages. Weak sauce.

And I don't think I even wrote much about any of those. And I probably still acquired more than 9 books in 2006.


Happy 2007, folks.
