What I Read in 2005 (51 Titles)

I’m going to change around a bit how I record the books I’ve read. This coming year, I’ll log titles by doing a short blog entry about them, instead of doing a running list as I have in years past. I’m shifting my past lists of books read over into my blog, as well under the category of “Books I’ve Read.”

    After reading “The Radioactive Boy Scout” (a fascinating story, I agree) you may wish to better understand how current U.S. nuclear plants operate. For this, see “Rad Decision”, the on-line novel of nuclear power by a longtime industry worker. Available at no cost to readers at http://RadDecision.blogspot.com
    “I’d like to see Rad Decision widely read.” – Stewart Brand, futurist and founder of The Whole Earth Catalog

    I’m at the library and thought I’d check your “books I’ve read” for recommendations. Excellent timing. 🙂

    I’d recommend “The Book of Illusions” by Paul Auster pretty highly. I just finished it for my book club. I can’t review it yet (not allowed to talk about the book before book club) but I enjoyed it.
