How about a simple list linked to a detailed list?

Post VANDY's Books Read in 2011

Hello, All.

What a wonderful Idea to have a book reading challenge for 2011. I'm certainly excited about participating and will use this post to keep track of the books I've read.

I am going to use Fastolfe's rating system as I believe it to be quite nice and graphically informative. The rating system is shown below.

= the book is a turd, avoid at all costs
= not sure what to make of it
= okay book
= good book, recommended
= great book, highly recommended
= reading in progress

Further, I am going to use a modification of wcherrybomb's method of detailing the books I've read.

On to the list...

Book #1
Rating:
Title: 1632
Author: Eric Flint
Pages: 504
Genre: Science Fiction
Review: Outstanding book! One of the best SciFi reads I've enjoyed in years. Mr. Flint is an excellent author and has a writing style that paints vivid mind pictures. I found myself drawn into the story and becoming one of the players. I highly recommend this book.

Book #2
Rating:
Title: 1633
Author: Eric Flint
Pages: 608
Genre: Science Fiction
Review:

Book #3
Rating:
Title: Hero (The Cat Star Chronicles, Book 6)
Author: Cheryl Brooks
Pages: 365
Genre: Science Fiction Romance (Mature)
Review:



As I finish and / or start more books, I'll edit this post. Good reading to all!

Regards,

Well, I've never kept track of books I've read in any given year. This seems like a good time to start!

I've only got one finished, so far, and am working on another. I'll keep my list updated in the Excel file linked below (just 'cause it's easier than trying to find this particular post) - if that's okay.

Happy reading, everyone!

1. The Key of the Keplian: Secrets of the Witch World by Andre Norton & Lyn McConchie
Length: 186 pages (ebook)
Genre: Fantasy
Summary: Eleeri is a 16 year old mixed Native American and White girl who lives with her dying grandfather, Far Traveler. Other than her grandfather, her only living relatives are her White aunt and uncle - who hate and abuse her for being Native American. Since Far Traveler is dying, Social Services plan to return her to the care of her aunt and uncle. Knowing this, Far Traveler has trained and prepared Eleeri as a true Native American Warrior. She is given knowledge, skills, unmarked gold and jewels, and a map. The map leads to a gate to the Witch World - and Eleeri's freedom. Once in Witch World, Eleeri learns to use her skills and newly found magic to find love and a place of her own.
Rating: 5/5 In all honestly, I am partial to Andre Norton and her Witch World series. I might not be an impartial judge, but I loved the story and would recommend it to anyone. For lovers of Andre Norton's Witch World, this book is a must read! I'd always wanted the "evil" keplians to be a good as they were beautiful.


Next in progress:
2. The Lion's Game by Nelson DeMille
Length: 923 pgs (pb)
Genre: Crime Thriller
Summary:
Rating:

3. Swords & Dark Magics: The New Sword and Sorcery edited by Lou Anders & Jonathan Strahan
Length: Unsure - Anthology with 16 stories (ebook)
Genre: Fantasy, Anthology

Please don't post here. We are still sorting things out and all that will happen is your posts will be in the wrong place possibly.

Rather than list here the books I am currently reading, I have started a bookshself at goodreads which you are welcome to look at: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4689852

I will use the Down Beat five-star method of rating my books. (5 - excellent, 4 - very good, 3 - good, 2 - fair, 1 - poor)

+++++

1....1/1....PG Wodehouse - Right Ho, Jeeves
5 stars
(Read 77% in 2010.) Complete silliness, for lovers of the English language. Laugh out loud funny.

+++++

2....1/2....Arthur J. Penty - Post-Industrialism
4 stars
(Read 76% in 2010.) 1922 analysis of the problems of industrialism and the author's belief that the solutions are to be found by returning to the culture of the Middle Ages.
