I love to read, and I am almost always working my way through a book. I read while eating, walking on the treadmill, even while watching TV. People who see me reading a lot have asked me from time to time how many books I read each year. I had heard of people who maintain reading lists, but I had never done so. So, starting in 2005, I decided to record every book that I read.
I averaged almost a book a week in 2005. My pace slowed in 2006 as I started my R-Squared Energy Blog, and did a lot of writing for The Oil Drum and various other websites. However, I am still averaging over 2 books a month in 2006.
What do I read? Mostly science fiction, or books on science. I am also pretty fond of biographies, and this year I finally started reading Tom Clancy. Usually I check books out from the library, but every now and then I will join a science fiction book club and load up on books.
Anyway, I thought I would share my book list, and update it every time I finish a book. I will post my reading list starting in 2005, give my favorites from 2005, and then put up 2006. If you have a recommendation based on any of the books on my list, I would love to hear it.
