I'm 100+ pages into Godzilla FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the King of Monsters, by Brian Solomon. My son got it for me for Christmas, knowing of my long-time love for the kaiju movie genre. It's been a good behind-the-scenes look at the making of the various Godzilla movies.

When we moved, I sold most of my books and gaming stuff, as I thought I'd move every 5 years and not buy a house again....turns out that wasn't the plan, so I re-bought some books, including what I'm re-reading now.....A Song for Arbonne

Still reading Exploring Eberron by Keith Baker.

Still reading Searching for Bobby Fischer.

Still reading Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher.

Still reading The Last Threshold by R. A. Salvatore.

Still reading The World of Critical Role: The History Behind the Epic Fantasy by Liz Marsham & the cast of Critical Role.

Finished reading Blood Tally by Brian McClellan.

Still reading Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson.

Started reading Hillbilly Elegy by J. D. Vance.
 

I'm just starting Crooked River, the latest in the Agent Pendergast series by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, which I got as a Christmas present. I'm almost afraid to start it, though, because once I do I'm liable to want to just keep reading through the end and I have a lot of prep stuff to do here at home: tomorrow we're scheduled for our first D&D game session since August!

Yeah, my experience with it as well. It was a little depressing, but quite powerful.

A Canticle For Liebowitz

Regarded as one of the most important science fiction books.....I kind of devoured it once I started.

I finished Leiber's Night of the Long Knives. For a short novella, it casts a long shadow. You can easily see its influence in Mad Max and Fallout.

Now I'm reading Moorcock's The Knight of the Sword. Of the big four (Elric, Erekose, Hawkmoon, Corum), I've yet to get to Corum, so I figured it was high time I did so.

That's a GOOD book.

Good news, I got a bunch of books for Christmas (I'll share later, have to jump into a work meeting).
Bad news, my 2 (TWO!) shelves of to be read have now officially overflowed...
Two? TWO????
Oh man. That's it. You're done now. It never gets better. You'll be chasing the high for the rest of your life. ;)

I've read a few things, mostly been noodling around. Got Obama's memoir for Christmas, and expecting a few more books, but went really light on it this year. I've got so much "to be read" it's kinda insane, plus 30+ years of Analog magazine to go through if I want (it's recent years, not the vintage years, quit drooling).

I eventually had to end my sub to Analog because I couldn't keep up. Although maybe my fiction acquisition habit just transferred to novels... :-/

Legend
As the year ends, I'm savoring Algernon Blackwood's The Centaur. Having read only only of his long short stories, "The Willows," and just a half dozen chapters in, I can say that Blackwood has vaulted into my top five or so spec fic authors.

Dying in Chargen
I have been reading Galactic North, short stories from the Revelation Space setting, I thought I had read it, except I hadn't, so this is a happy occurrence and I am thinking of re-reading Revelation Space because of it.
