Edit: Well it's safe to say I did a crap job this year of tracking my books. I shall endeavour to do better next year.

So, I just finished reading V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. I must say I rather liked it, but then I have a soft spot for dystopian type settings. Certainly had some concepts in it worth pondering. Eventually, I might watch the movie, just to compare it to the comic. *eyes the pile of movies that need watching and books that need reading* Oh, for extra hours in the day. They would be well used.

In other news, Borders is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The store near me, thankfully, is not on the list of scheduled closures. I know with the increasing convenience of e-readers, online ordering, etc, brick and mortar storefronts carrying dead tree books are edging towards eventual extinction; but I still enjoy browsing, picking up a book to flip through it, maybe reading a chapter to decide if I want to take it home. Heck, even with my fascination for all things shiny and electronic, I still pay my bills by check. (I just prefer having a paper trail for finances, which I can later recycle. ;))

(speaking of books, I'm currently enjoying the first of the Night Angel trilogy, The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks. Yay, assassins)

Ah well, more information about this can be found here, including the list of stores to be closed.

Just for a bit of fun I decided to track what I read over the course of the year, be it manga, books, comics or re-reads of any of the previous. This post will be where I keep the main list. (Unless noted, all things read will be of the dead tree variety)

Mostly this is for my own curiosity, but anyone is welcome to comment or suggest reading material. :)

So, a few days ago [ profile] feylan loaned me two books to read: Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein, and Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. I just need to decide which to read first.

The one is touted as "the most famous science fiction novel ever written" and would be the first of Heinlein's works that I will have read, and the other is a post-holocaust/apocalypse/disaster scenario, one of my favourite settings.

Decisions, decisions...

I've been working my way through Clive Barker's Mister B. Gone during random free moments in which I have time to read. So far I like it. It's certainly a much lighter read than some of his previous work (Imajica, I'm looking at you) but still entertaining. When the first sentence of a book entreats you to burn it, you know it's going to be interesting, to say the least. :)
