Reading list time ...

Yes, it's that time of year again ... when the folks in librarything start playing "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" with these (typically pretty pointless, frankly) polls.

So, for the second year in a row, you can run down the list of the 79 non-fiction books I read this year and wonder why you've never heard of any of them (well, mostly, I did read some "popular" stuff this time out). As always, you can go see my books (and have handy links out to my brilliant reviews) over at LibraryThing!

I know I'm a bit early with this, as the year's not quite over, but I just started a reasonably hefty book, which I'm sure will not only take me into the new year, but all of next week as well, so I can start to tidy up my various obsessive-compulsive lists, etc..

Oh, c'mon ... you want to check some boxes, don'tcha?
