Fred's Reading Report (June 2009)

Books read, year-to-date? 174, with 28 books read during the month.

The books read in June were...

David Drake: When the Tide Rises (part of the Leary of the RCN series).

William Gibson: Virtual Light (part of the Bridge Sequence).

Masashi Kishimoto: Naruto, Volumes 01 through 22.

Patrick O'Brian: The Nutmeg of Consolation (part of the Aubrey-Maturin series).

John Ringo: When the Devil Dances (part of the Legacy of the Aldenata series).

John Ringo and David Weber: March to the Sea (part of the Prince Roger series).

Howard Tayler: The Tub of Happiness (part of the Schlock Mercenary series).

A mixed bag, with a heavy emphasis on fun/action for the month. Best reads were mirrors of each other, David Drake and Patrick O'Brian. Most intellectual probably was William Gibson (a re-read). Most fun was probably Howard Tayler. Sergeant Schlock is going to save me!

Short works? 233 read, year-to-date. The goal is to read one short a day, so I have 132 to go to meet that goal. (The list of short works is actually pretty out of date and in need of serious fixing.
