i guess if i read em all in a year, it would be pretty good, after a short non reading period after high school my appetite for books has steadily increased. i find it helpful to have a stack of books ready to go, so i don't have to look for one when i finish a book and am hungry for the next one.

i will definetly make a post with table information for wondercon before it happens, our books will be for sale! and i will be sitting there drawing

That's cool and all, but you should post what you've drawn this year instead.

Don't listen to haters, book lists rock. I've read about a third of those; wasn't too into the Stegner, Perelandra was bizarre and has wonderful descriptive passages, but also made me feel pretty creeped out by C.S. Lewis's ideas of morality. Don't expect too much plot from Okri, but his imagery makes it all worthwhile. O'Connor & Woolf: A+++

I keep hearing that cancer book is good; I'll get to it sometime. I recently read & would recommend Hans Fallada's Every Man Dies Alone.
