Back up to a normal reading speed--I should start doing these monthly again.

A Dance With Dragons--mild spoilers, and general statements about the series that will come as no surprise to anyone who's actually read Martin ever )

All Men of Genius by Lev Rosen--no spoilers )

I don't normally mention beta-reads here, because it's not like they're available for everyone else to read.  But I feel I can safely predict that [livejournal.com profile] gaudior's as-yet-untitled first novel will be available for the rest of you to read at some point.  At which point, you should read it.

Cradle to Cradle by Bill McDonough and Michael Braungart--nonfiction )

1493 by Charles Mann--nonfiction )

The Tempering of Men by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette--no spoilers )

The Wooden Star by William Tenn--no spoilers )

The Zanzibar Cat by Joanna Russ--mild spoilers for "When It Changed" )

Fostering Sustainable Behavior by Doug McKenzie-Mohr & William Smith )

A Shadow in Summer by Daniel Abraham--slightly vague spoilers )

The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman.  Comfort reread.  Gaimans that I have read and loved many times are never going to disappoint me.

The Logic of Failure by Dietrich Dorner--nonfiction )

A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge--no spoilers except for a description of one awesome alien species )

Other media Consumed:

Shadow Unit and assorted podcasts )

Total Books: 13
Recent Publication: 4/13
Rereads: 1/13
Recommendations: Someone on Tor.com recommended All Men of Genius.  My boss recommended Cradle to Cradle.  Both [livejournal.com profile] papersky and [livejournal.com profile] rushthatspeaks recommended A Shadow in Summer; sorry, guys. [livejournal.com profile] papersky also recommended A Fire Upon the Deep; thank you!  My old boss lent me The Logic of Failure about six years ago, but this is my own copy because I didn't get to it until now.  Which says more about my old job than the book, really.
New Music: none
New Media Produced: More on both the Aphra Marsh story and The Jester's Child.  A couple of papers for work, which actually seem to be having some effect.
