I know it’s late, but until taxes are due I can still write about 2008. There is lots to cover in the annual ‘Year In Review’ post, but I’ll get to that soon enough.
This post covers the books I read in 2008. Since I post my writeups about the books around the time I finish them (to help me keep a chronology of what I’ve read) many won’t show up on the first page on this site, so this post helps shed some light on them.
Please let me know your thoughts on these books (especially the ones I didn’t like) in the comments.
The books I read during 2008, in chronological order:
- “Midnight’s Children” by Salman Rushdie
- “A Fine Balance” by Rohinton Mistry
- “Family Matters” by Rohinton Mistry
- “Unaccustomed Earth” by Jhumpa Lahiri
- “Liar’s Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street” by Michael Lewis
- “Tokyo Doesn’t Love Us Anymore” by Ray Loriga
- “The Life of David Gale” by Dewey Gram
- “The House” by Danielle Steel
- “A Case of Need” by Michael Crichton
- “Seize the Night” by Dean Koontz
Also worth noting, I updated the tags on all the posts in the reading category to include the author’s name, hopefully this will be helpful metadata to track trends in my reading habits.
