yearly book roundup

In Uncategorized on January 18, 2006

update to last year’s book roundup post:

  • in 2005 i read 20 books i bought in 2005.
  • in 2005 i read 4 books i bought in 2004.
  • in 2005 i read 0 books i bought in 2003.
  • in 2005 i read 2 books i bought in 2002.
  • in 2005 i read 1 books i bought in 2001.
  • in 2005 i read 1 books i bought in 2000.
  • in 2005 i read 18 books i hadn’t bought at all.

i bought less books than ever in 2005, just 20 of them, and read the lot! go, me!

reading resolutions for the year before last (read books as i buy them, borrow more books) have been kept to again and last years resolution was simply to manage to keep reading and i think i kept to that pretty well. this year i’d like to read more non-fiction, though i did read quite a lot more than recently last year with 8 non-fiction reads on my list of 46 books (17%), non-fiction also suffers from not being the kind of book i log when it’s a dip-in and not a cover-to-cover kind of read..

In books,knitting,rambling on on January 18, 2006

my booklog has been more or less up to date more or less all along. it is now spookily showing that i’ve read 470 books since the beginning of 2000, one every 4.70 days. which of course isn’t spooky at all. it just means i’ve been logging books read for 2209 days or thereabouts.

my knitting page had got horribly out of date, or at least it looked that way. it’s more or less up to date now, which didn’t take very much doing as i haven’t done that much knitting in the past year. have been busy, as you may have noticed. it’s still missing a few ‘current projects’ which are lying about in various stages of incompleteness, but i’ll get them on when i pick them up again.

Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris

In books read on January 15, 2006

Good story; my only problem with this book was that I'd read one too many reviews of it beforehand. I'd certainly seen it mentioned that the book had a twist to it and that it was a big surprise. However if you know this before you read it you can see the twist coming a mile off; or at least I could. Which is my own fault for trying to play beat the author rather than enjoying the tale really. A good story well told all the same.

Borrowed.

Almost Like a Whale by Steve Jones

In books read on January 9, 2006

Absolutley fabulous book covering everything about how we know evolution is what actually happened; just brilliant, took me forever and a day to read it but it was never a slow read, just thick and dense with fascinating facts and explanations. Highly recommended.

Borrowed.
