It's not that impressive. I don't do much but eat, sleep, game, read and work.

I do count audiobooks as 'reading', and this year they made the great majority of my reading list (about 70-30 audio versus paper).

Want to do more print in 2011. And less video games.

If I'd get off my computer more, I'd probably read 200 books a year (in print).

Just finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman. First book I've read of his, decent entertainment.

Also took in Joe Abercrombie's stand-alone novel Best Served Cold. Enjoyed it, and genuinely laughed out loud a couple times at the dark humor of it (which made me feel a bit more twisted than normal). I feel like he explored the same concepts he did in the First Law Trilogy without taking them all that much further though.

American Gods was decent, although I couldnt shake that "almost, but not quite great" feeling with it.

The Abercrombie book sounds like something I've been in the mood to read lately.

I picked up Tokyo Vice yesterday. So far it's a pretty cool True Crime book. Author is from Missouri and was a crime beat writer for a Japanese newspaper. He apparently got wrapped up in some info that the Yakuza didn't like. And you know how much they don't like stuff like that!

Who sent that to you, Stevie? We're not Facebook friends as far as I know. Seems like a very strange post to bring that out, unless you find literature offensive or something.

I ain't no bitch like Billay, though. I don't care that this was posted, mostly because I clearly have no biceps to be proud of.

Pretty much. I enjoyed the premise more than the execution.

Just bought myself 'Thieves Like Us' by Edward Anderson, for my Kindle.

Finished Black Hole by Charles Burns last night. Kind of weird, but impressive in it's own way.

I'm making another attempt to slog through Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces. I picked it up about a year ago, and while the idea of the monomyth grabs my imagination, the book itself clearly did not; I couldn't make it more than a couple of pages on my initial effort.

(It's better than Tylenol PM if any of you ever have problems sleeping.)

But I've managed to make it through Chapter 1 this time around, and I'm going to keep soldiering on.

I'm about half way through "The War for Late Night: When Leno Went Early and Television Went Crazy" by Bill Carter. So far it's pretty good. A good look into the whole Conan/Leno Tonight Show fiasco.
