Books Read in 2008

Looking back on the list, I think it’s quite short. What I will point out is that there are some very lengthy books on this list. I don’t know if that’s an acceptable excuse or not. I know one thing that’s not an acceptable excuse…I’ve gotten quite caught up in Facebook the past month or two and it really hurt my productivity in other areas (those are, reading and blog posting).

Another thing of note is that this year I went through a little Michael Creighton phase. Coming from a medical background, I find his books rather fascinating.

I, too, like keeping track of the books. I think it will be fun to look back on this someday. One thing I did differently this year was to give a rating for each book (_/5). Next year I may not keep the rating. I will probably distinguish whether the book is science fiction/fantasy, fiction, or non-fiction.

(After looking at my post preview, I see all my fancy columning didn’t work.)
