The Books I Read in 2005


Last Year, a couple people posted what they read the year before. The idea intrigued me, so I kept a list this year. This year saw a return for me to Science Fiction, and to some degree Fantasy. I have, for the past few years, been either too busy to read much, or simply more interested in trying to expand my horizons to indulge in my favorite two genres.

I also read more this year than the last couple years. I found keeping the list drove me to try and read more so I could have a longer list to post. Heh, shows how much my pride drives me to worry about what other people think. ;)
