2. Reamde by Neal Stephenson

I really enjoyed this thriller from Stephenson. Sure it is long and took a while to get through, but it always held my interest and was a fun story. His spin on the MMORPG is an interesting one - creating an in game economy that has out of game connections built in (as opposed to WoW where the connections are there, but against the rules.)

12 in 12 Challenge
- nothing beyond another book read, but it was started last year before the challenge, and was a LibraryThing free book that I needed to read and review.

Yesterday I was in the city for a walk with Naomi and some of the other PhillyFit folks. After the walk I found that Bookhaven was just a few blocks from my car, so we went to check it out. Very nice store, and cool cat :)

2. Darwin's Radio by Greg Bear
3. Princeps' Fury by Jim Butcher

For those of you who are curious, here is the full list of books I'm going to try and read this year. They are broken down into the categories I picked for my 12 in '12 challenges. I've got 10 reading challenges and 2 non-reading challenges. Since I know I can't read 120 books in a year, I'm letting some books hit more then one category. A few of the books (marked with a * in front) I still need to find and buy.
