So Joe, good, bad, better than expected? Always curious about your reading choices!

Hi Todd,

I'm probably not doing the even semi-detailed posts here anymore, but I highly recommend Ninefox Gambit, City of Miracles, Borne, The Geek Feminist Revolution, and A Closed and Common Orbit.

I didn't hate Death's End (see my Hugo coverage at Nerds of a Feather), so that's a win.

Joe... don't forsake us. I need that reading list to get through the winter...

Yes, we require these lists.

Have you considered an "Adventures on Reading" quarterly or, heck, even annual update list over at Nerds? Maybe you do and I've missed it...that's possible.
