I left off tallying after awhile (though I came nowhere near 50) but I will endeavor to keep up this time!

I'm still working on the last half book of 2012 - part of the Guinevere Trilogy - quite good actually - well researched and in my view well written from a first person perspective. Learned a fair bit about the general time frame and geo-politics tho of course it's speculative tho well grounded in general history of the time and region.

Not sure of first of the new year - Future Physics will likely serve to put me to sleep on the plane journey to Australia in a few weeks. :td:

2. Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, Laurie Viera Rigler. (Interesting premise but it was stretched out too long.)
