    1. Children of the Sky, Vernor Vinge.
    2. Shades of Grey, Jasper Fforde.
    3. Night Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko.
    4. Day Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko.
    5. Twilight Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko.
    6. Last Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko.
    7. A Path To Coldness of Heart, Glen Cook
    8. The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern. Wow. It has flaws, and there are things I could carp about, but . . . wow. Gripping, moving, smart, beautifully written. If her next novel is as good as her first, this woman could be the next Neil Gaiman.

    In progress:
    • Charles C. Mann's 1491. This is a 'state of the world' history on the Americas as the were in the last few years before Columbus. It's a great book for picking up and reading a few chapters at a time.
    • The improbably titled but rather fascinating The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner by James Hogg. It's requiring a slow, careful read due to the use of unreliable narrators.
    • Neal Stephenson's ReamDe. Stephenson does Ludlum; too early in the book to tell if he succeeds.
    • The Night Eternal, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. A gift, and from reading the first couple of chapters, thank God I didn't buy it.

    In the on-deck pile:
    • Hounded, Kevin Hearne.

    Expected this year:
    • Sacre Bleu, Christopher Moore (spring). Christopher Moore, what else do you need to know? This time he does to the French impressionists what he did to King Lear in Fool.
    • The Apocalypse Codex by Charlie Stross (summer). Due to a memory error, I almost got to name this book.

    01 - Douglas Clegg - Neverland
    02 - Tom Holt - In Your Dreams
    03 - Tom Holt - Earth, Air, Fire and Custard
    04 - C. Dulaney - Roads Less Traveled: The Plan
    05 - Charlie Higson - The Enemy
    06 - Philip Reeve - Fever Crumb
    07 - Eric Brown - Necropath
    08 - Eric Brown - Xenopath
    09 - Elmore Leonard - Pronto
    10 - Elmore Leonard - Riding The Rap

    Didn't like it much the first time and I didn't the second time either. Might be my least favorite of his novels. My fingers are crossed that 'Raylan' will be worth the effort.

    My damn problem is I have no follow through. I must have 10 books going on right now and I'm 100 pages into each.

    Some good insights on the process of writing by Colum McCann in conversation with Paul Holdengraber, director of Public Programs at the New York Public Library.

    8. The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern
    9. The Eyre Affair, Jasper Fforde. This and the next were read because I got ill and needed to re-read something rather than have to think about what I was reading.
    10. Lost In A Good Book, Jasper Fforde. See #9.
