The holidays are usually tough. This year proved especially so, hitting me far harder than usual. As you can imagine, this sapped my focus, as well as my will to do things like blogging.
My wife suggested I edit my Book listing recently, so that suggested a project. Something I have a passion for: discussing the novels I've read. Typically, I'll read anywhere from sixty to a hundred books in a year. Recently, that's included graphic novels. Last year, I read around eighty. That's a fair amount of reading, when you consider that I also read comic books, magazines, and occasionally even reread a novel to enhance my understanding of it. I don't list graphic novels on the sidebar, so those are just novels and nonfiction you'll find there.
Last year, I removed "Books I Enjoyed in 2011, 2012, and 2013" from the sidebar. This month I took off the 2014 books. In case any of you are interested in reviewing my reading tastes, or just looking for a recommendation, I've decided to set up a page for the previous years of reading that have dropped off the sidebar.
Right now, I'm working on the books I read in 2011. I'm trying to include a few words of what I remember enjoying about each book as I can. It will take awhile, so if you're interested in my thoughts and recollections of 2011 Books, check back occasionally. Maybe I'll even include a few photos of the books.
Hopefully, unlike my Conan Chronology page, I'll complete the 2011 Books page relatively quickly, and move on to later years. Maybe I'll even take another crack at Conan. Time, focus, and will allowing, I'll post this month about the books I read last month. As to the rest, (by Crom!), who knows what the future holds?
