• [Sci-Fi September]

    I’m moving right along! Now that I’m done teaching my “short” (but intensive!) course and the marking is all done for it, I obviously had more time to sit back and read, because I read 13 books in September. That’s more than double August’s total of only 6. Here’s the list:

    1. Lost in the Translation, by Margaret Ball
    2. Chryslids, by John Wyndhham
    3. The Glasswrights’ Apprentice, by Mindy Klasky, first book in the Rani Trader series.
    4. Kris Longknife: Mutineer, by Mike Shepherd, first in his series about a space merchant princess opting for the Navy.
    5. Kris Longknife: Deserter, by Mike Shepherd, second in his series about a space merchant princess opting for the Navy.
    6. Trading in Danger, Elizabeth Moon, first in in the Kylara Vatta merchant family series.
    7. Marque and Reprisal, by Elizabeth Moon, second in the Kylara Vatta merchant family series.
    8. The Glasswrights’ Progress, by Mindy Klasky, second book in the Rani Trader series.
    9. The Glasswrights’ Journeyman, by Mindy Klasky, third book in the Rani Trader series.
    10. The Glasswrights’ Test, by Mindy Klasky, fourth book in the Rani Trader series.
    11. The Andromeda Strain, by Michael Crichton, classic biochemical suspense thriller.
    12. The Great Train Robbery, by Michael Crichton.
    13. For Your Eyes Only, by Ian Fleming, a collection of five short James Bond adventures.

    Life Of Pi, with link to Brainstorms Amazon Associate AccountAgain, science fiction strongly dominates, although the last three are more suspense and thriller books. Nine of these were from the shelf of my friend in Vancouver while I was visiting him. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find the last book in the Rani Trader Glasswright series. I’ve been left in suspense as to what happens to bring the whole thing to a tidy close.

    The keen-eyed amonst you might have noticed that I haven’t listed any audiobooks lately. The truth is, I haven’t had time to finish any, because I often listen to them while on the bus or while walking up and down the seafront. While I was in Canada, I didn’t do those things. As a result, I’ve been working my way through the unabridged Life of Pi (Yann Martel) for ages now, but the end is in sight!

    Grand total for the year is 88.

    See more progress on: read 100 books in 2005

      Yo, E.
      I just found your blog via Glens’ blog, and linked to your Feynman piece. I love Feynman.
      I just ran into someone the other day at a chance meeting and we began talking out of the blue about our love for Feynman’s life and style.
