Books read in 2011 - Part 1

I'll also be counting short stories, but just to follow the rules as closely as possible I'll consider 2 short stories to be one book.

I'm going to be using Fastolfe's rating system.

= 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

I'm going to be stealing Fastolfe's rating system, too:

= 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

1. Hod kroz godinu (Vitomir Belaj). 458 pages.
. I'd give it two thumbs up, but the multitude of errors that I found (in the second edition no less) are keeping me back. (Finished Jan. 7th)

2. Elantris (Brandon Sanderson). 656 pages.
(Finished Jan. 5th)

3. The Crown Conspiracy (Micheal J. Sullivan). 324 pages.
A promising start to a new series. (Finished Jan. 8th)

4. Avempartha (Micheal J. Sullivan). 344 pages.


5. La mythologie slavique (Louis Leger). 258 pages.


6. Nyphron Rising (Micheal J. Sullivan. 372 pages.


7. The Emerald Storm (Micheal J. Sullivan. 396 pages.


8. Jack of Shadows. Roger Zelazny. 207 pages.


9. The Hedge Knight. George R. R. Martin. 160 pages.


10. Wintertide. (Micheal J. Sullivan). 380 pages.

What in the world am I going to read after I finish this series?

11. Noctures. Kazuo Ishiguro. 240 pages.


12. The Sworn Sword. George R.R. Martin. 160 pages.


13. The Mystery Knight. George R.R. Martin. 160 pages.


14. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. 272 pages.


14. The Mists of Avalon. MBZ. 912 pages.


15. Poison Study. Maria Snyder. 416 pages.


16. Magic Study. Maria Snyder. 448 pages.


17. Power of Three. Diana Wynne Jones. 336 pages.

I'd give this 4 and a half stars.

18. Norwegian Wood. Haruki Murakami. 298 pages.
re-read.

19. Jack of Shadows. Roger Zelazny.


20. Warbeaker.

21. Rats Saw God

I am joining the thread to see what others are reading (and to be subscribed so I can keep getting updates).

My books are in an Excel file on Dropbox, accessible through the link in my signature.

It's just easier to update that...

Click on your ticker and it will take you to the update page.
Enter your password & update.

You will then have to choose "next" a few times until you come to the end with the new BB Code.

For 2012 I will be counting pages, not books, and have set my goal at 30,000 pages, which is less than 2011. The 10-12 weeks I was unemployed in 2011 may have had too much of an effect on the years reading challenge, so we will see what 2012 brings (having said that I have a new job that sometimes provides me with time to read during the day, so who knows how much I might get through)
