    Finishing the year with 2666 sounds like a great plan to me, Stu! Of course, I’m a little biased because I’m thinking about rereading it next year. In the meantime, #3, #4 and #6 on your list above are books I’d like to read myself one day. P.S. Do you find blogging influences your book selection or do you read whatever you want whenever you want regardless?

    Purge is excellent but VERY heart-rending. Almost too harrowing to read at times – or so I found.
