No doubt. The to-read list is long for me as well. This is the first time I have ever done a list like this, as a challenge and to keep me focused throughout the year. There are always enough books to read. I actually found it fun looking forward to all the books I would be reading.
Um. Username.

I haven't read Dave Barry in years. I should pick that up and share with my husband and dad (I know dad will appreciate it, anyway, husband is not much of a reader).

Last night I was trawling for free Amazon downloads and found something called "Greegs & Ladders", which is apparently "A Science Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Time Travel, Satire, Comedy, Sci-Fi Parody, Free Ebook Novel Thing". We'll see how that goes.

I still intend to download the complete "Wool", just as soon as I apply the gift card that's sitting on my desk. I need to stock up on readables before the baby comes, because I figure while he's nursing, I'm stuck sitting down and I can hold him with one hand and read with the other.

I have finished Anathem by Neal Stephenson. It was quite a journey, but definitely high-grade Hard SF. Not just an amazing exercise in world-building, somewhat like a cross between The Hobbit and Psychohistorical Crisis, but also a great cast of characters engaging in (literal) dialogues about science, philosophy, the philosophy of science, and the science of philosophy. Let me tell you, metaphysics is more than just intellectual finger-painting in this book. Highly recommended.

Next on my list was Fate of Worlds by Larry Niven-- but a draft of Sabrina Zbasnik's new novel as fallen into my hands, so I've started in on that.

I usually have an idea of the next two or three books I want to read, but it seldom works out-- see above.

I just picked up The Feminine Mystique today. Since I may not talk for a while, might as well read something new to me, right?

I finished Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I'm rereading it. I plan to read the entire series in the order they were published.

I'm reading Galveston by Nic Pizzolatto. Very interesting book with a unique structure.
