A friend of mine from my university days threw down the gauntlet. Read one book a week for the entire year. I figure I need to beef up my count at the front end to make up for a generally busier summer that has less free time to read. So far this year I've read:
Tinker, Wolf Who Rules and Elfhome by Wen Spencer
The Weapon By Mad Mike Williamson
Dog and Dragon by Dave Freer
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
I've also started:
Recollections of the Red River Expedition Wm. Hubbard (not really a full book)
Forty Years in Canada: Reminiscences of the Great North-West, with Some Account of His Service in South Africa Sir Samuel Benfield Steele
I sent my list to my friend this morning, I feel cheated. He's already given up.
On an semi-related note, I was surprised at how much of the book made it into the movie version of The Princess Bride. Inigo was a much more sympathetic character in the movie though.
