2010 Reading List

With a new year dawning I thought it would be a fun experiment to keep track of what I read throughout the year by maintaining a running list of books, magazines, and comics that I torment my tired old eyes with. I’ve always believed that you can tell a lot about a person by examining the works they choose to pass their time with. This will be your chance to take an intimate look into where I lose myself…

I will rank each book I read on a five point scale, each point marked by a bat symbol.


Don’t waste your time.


Didn’t work for me.


An entertaining read.


A kick ass book, well-crafted and firing on all cylinders.


A perfectly sublime experience…
a near magical excursion into literary excellence.

We shall begin with a book I decided to revisit last night, the 30th of December. It is my favorite novel and I have submerged myself into its magical prose nine times since first discovering it while in college in 1990. I can’t think of a better way to start the new year…
