2014 in Books

2013 in books was lost due to a HD malfunction, but I have been recording the books that I read on my other computer. I had my ups and downs in reading, and I did spend time rereading books that I had already read before. I was able to find most of Roberto Bolano’s novels in epub format, which is simply great. The Peripheral was definitely a great read from William Gibson.

I spent the last part of the year rereading Peter F. Hamilton’s Commonwealth books, from the Commonwealth saga to the Void Trilogy. This happened only a few months after I had finished the The Abyss Beyond Dreams, which I also reread as my first book of 2015. The Rifters trilogy from Peter Watts was also a rediscovery, as I had read Starfish before, but didn’t get hooked. The first two novels helped set the setting and it was a very good read.

I managed to read 34 books this year, which is down from previous years, but I did spend some weeks not reading. It doesn’t help that I tend to read very long books. I’m hoping to beat my record of 85 books from 2011 this year.
