Life is short, and books are many [Jul. 15th, 2015|09:01 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I keep a book diary - an actual, paper, diary: I record what I have been reading in a spiral-bound notebook. When I reach the end of a volume, I index it, for future reference, and I also post that index here. Previous years, and more explanations, here.

For the benefit of those playing along at home: not all diary entries, by a long way, make book posts in this LJ; but pretty well all book posts in this LJ will eventually make diary entries. There is a time-lag, which varies in length but it currently much longer than it should be.

Links to LJ posts.

One last note: previous lists have included a handful of books which I have been privileged to read pre-publication. Mostly, by the time I come to post this index, the books in question have been published, so this is not obvious, and I'm happy just to list them. I have deleted from this instalment a couple of books which remain unpublished, one way and another, at present.
