25 books this year

That's my goal. I'll post the reviews of the good ones.

It's a great idea, and you're reading some very interesting works. How do you choose which books get read?

A lot of it came from my Secret Santa - someone I work with. I think if I had drawn Kurt Vonnegut I couldn't have wished for a better Secret Santa. I wrote on the little form that "I like interesting fiction, particularly new authors". She gave me The Kite Runner, The Painted Bird, Straight Man, The Corrections, and Of Love and Other Demons. Those will be interspersed throughout the year.

Otherwise, I've been visiting Borders recently - they have a table set up with trade paperback fiction at 3 for 2. That's been a wealth of works, which will comprise most of the year's reading.

Long answer to a simple question, as usual...
