2012 in Reading Material

As always, the goal was to read at least forty, and as usual it was more like thirty-five.  Oh well.  For three weeks in October I didn't have glasses, and one of the books I read was motherfucking Ulysses, so I think I get a pass on this year.

  1. I'm not sure if you've indulged in The Dark Tower series, but they were pretty good. I'm not sure I would compare them to Tolkien or Bradbury, but still a hell of a tale. I'm also starting to get into the Xanth novels by Piers Anthony, they're very different, but pretty fun reads. But most of all I recommend The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind they are fantastic!
