Reading List 2011

If you are like me, bookmarks tend to be found objects that get tucked inside of books, lost among the pages.  Scraps of paper, drawings, reciepts ...  all have attempted to act as a bookmark, only to be tossed when the book has been completed.  Last year for Christmas Ishi got these nifty bookmarks from Santa that ask you to write the name of the book you are reading, take notes, mark pages, etc.  Well, that sounds like work really, but I thought it would be a neat idea to write down all the books that we read over the year and see just how much we read.  And hey!  It's the end of the year now and we both read a considerable amount of novels.  I loved this idea so much that I am going to do it again this year (and also make Ishi do it as well).


Ishi's bookmark is on the left, and mine on the right.  In case you are interested and can't read my writing, here's a list of the books I read in 2011.  Click to keep reading:

  1. J.K. Rowling - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows
  2. Simon Pegg - Nerd Do Well
  3. Gregory Maguire - Wicked
  4. Ann Brashares - My Name is Memory
  5. Lesley Livingston - Wondrous Strange
  6. L. Livingston - Darklight
  7. L. Livingston - Tempestuous
  8. Neil Gaiman - The Graveyard Book
  9. Naomi Novik - His Majesty's Dragon
  10. N. Gaiman - American Gods
  11. Jackson Pearce - Sisters Red
  12. George R.R. Martin - A Game of Thrones
  13. G.R.R.Martin - A Clash of Kings
  14. G.R.R.Martin - A Storm of Swords
  15. G.R.R.Martin - A Feast for Crows
  16. Ursula K. Leguin - The Word for World is Forest
  17. N. Gaiman & Terry Prachett - Good Omens
  18. L. Livingston - Once Every Never
  19. Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game

As you can tell, there are a few repeat authors.  I've already got a pretty hefty reading list for 2012, considering all the books I got for Christmas this year!  Better get started!

Here's Ishi's Reading List for 2011 too:

  1. William Gibson - Mona Lisa Overdrive
  2. W. Gibson - Count Zero
  3. W. Gibson - Neuromancer
  4. Neil Gaiman - Fragile Things
  5. N. Gaiman - American Gods
  6. Richard Morgan - Altered Carbon
  7. N. Gaiman - Smoke and Mirrors
  8. Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game
  9. O.S. Card - Ender in Exile
  10. O.S. Card - Speaker for the Dead
  11. O.S.Card - Xenocide
  12. Ursula K. Leguin - The Word for World is Forest
  13. W. Gibson - Neuromancer
  14. W. Gibson - Idoru

I'm surprized to see how many of the same books we read this year after one of us told the other how good it was.  Also, yes, Ishi really did read Neuromancer twice.  It was probably more, but he didn't write it down.

Happy Reading!
