100 in 2006

I've set a goal on 43 Things to read 100 books in 2006.  It's something that I've done a few times before (read a hundred books in a year), but I'm keeping track of things differently and also I have a little bit less time to read these days, so I want to see if I'll still hit a hundred books. 


And that's where the goal comes in.  I realized I might as well post each book and number them like "Book 20: The Nomad of Time" or something like that. 


But, since I've already gone through the first 20 books, here's what I've done so far this year:


1. His Family - Ernest Poole

2. Tributes II - Dave Meltzer

3. Stone of Farewell - Tad Williams

4. The Best American Short Stories 2005

5. Shadow of the Torturer - Gene Wolfe

6. The Complete Peanuts 1957-1958 - Charles M Schulz

7. The Three Incestuous Sisters - Audrey Niffenegger

8. I, Jedi - Michael Stackpole

9. The Astonishing X-Men: Gifted - Joss Whedon

10. Mad Ship - Robin Hobb

11. Kafka Americana - Jonathan Lethem

12. The Best American Sports Writing 2005

13. Starfighters of Adumar - Aaron Allston

14. A Feast for Crows - George R. R. Martin

15. Flight of the Nighthawks - Raymond E Feist

16. The Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous - Joss Whedon

17. Wicked - Gregory Maguire

18. Children of the Jedi - Barbara Hambly

19. The Kitchen Boy - Robert Alexander

20. The Nomad of Time - Michael Moorcock

Hey, was Shadow of the Torturer any good? Finished reading Wolfe's The Knight, loved it, and am getting The Wizard next thing. But was wondering if The Books of the New Sun were worth my time as well.

Also finished Midnight Tides. Seriously, this series is the shit. These might in the end beat A Song of Ice and Fire. No kidding. My mind is officially blown.

Also have to formulate to correct response to you and Rob regarding Feast for Crows.
