An exciting life lived in the world of books

I got this idea from Lee. Keep a running list of the books you read in one year, with a brief (or in depth depending on your whims) comment on each. I'm hardly a literary critic, so don't go expecting devastating incisiveness. You couldn't peel me away from a book when I was younger. I still read plenty, but I do squeeze a few other things into my life here and there. I reregisted with the local library, now I'm back in Kent til whenever. When I asked how many books you were allowed to take out, they told me "30, and please make full use of it, we need the borrowings". So I did, although I could only physically carry 16 home, because too many of the books I wanted were hardbacks. I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment, and not much money, and I'm feeling a little anti-social/misanthropic of late, so the library is my friend.
