I like to carry a book with me everywhere. I love to read and average 175-225 books a year, of all types. (209 in 1996!) (However, working on web pages and surfing the net has taken its toll... I only read 134 in 1998. Once we started geocaching, it was All Over, and it was 90 books in 2003, only 58 in 2006. Proofing for Distributed Proofreaders also took its toll, so 2007 was 40 books!) Mostly mysteries, but I also read Science Fiction, historicals, mainstream novels, humor, biographies, history, and children's lit, just to mention some. And I buy them, and buy them. I began to be bothered by this in '93 and developed a project to get rid of (i.e. give to friends or sell at a bookstore) more books than I took in. Hahahahaha!
|1999||850||Finally some sense!|
|2000||809||Ditto, but at this rate it will take 20 more years.|
|2003||476||Beginning to get there!|
|2004||317||Still working at it|
|2005||110||Getting there slowly.|
|2007||-28||Finally! Getting serious.|
This year so far.
I love rec.arts.books on usenet, and am a "RABbabe" in a virtual vote taken 6 or 7 years ago. (Well, I was third, but it counts. I say so.) Here is a page of RABble homepage links and another of Danny Yee's reviews. I also belong to the Dorothy-L mystery mailing list. Bouchercon was a great experience, and I will finish writing about it Real Soon Now. (Or not.)
Authors and Books I Like:
Reviews of some books. I wrote some of these when I belonged to a rec.arts.tv.soaps.abc book club. Others are by other people.
I recently attended a show of Charles Schneeman's science fiction illustrations.
Other People's Book Pages:
I was keeping a "currently reading" place here, but haven't touched it in months, so I'm abandoning it. I am reading the Durant history series, reading book 9, THE AGE OF VOLTAIRE at the moment. Please go to this page for my booknews of this year.
