Well, I swear I posted about books I'd read earlier this year, but there aren't any posts. Now I don't stand a chance of remembering everything. So in no particular order:
1. Kerstin Ekman The Forest of Hours
2. Asimov's Mar/Apr 2017
3. Asimov's May/Jun 2017
4. Asimov's Jan/Feb 2017
5. Eva A. Speare ed, New Hampshire Fold Tales
6. Robert Hoskins ed, "The Stars Around Us"
I swear I've read more, but then again the Ekman was a slog and I haven't really had any time to read.
In no particular order because I can't remember the order:
6. Joel Chandler Harris Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit
7. Henry D. Thoreau Cape Code
8. Asimov's Science Fiction March 2016
9. Asimov's Science Fiction April/May 2016
10. Asimov's Science Fiction June 2016
11. Asimov's Science Fiction July 2016
12. Constance Noyes Robertson Oneida Community The Breakup, 1876-1881
13. Ray Bradbury Green Shadows, White Whale
14. Terry Pratchett The Shepherd's Crown
15. Christopher Moore Secondhand Souls
16. Rudyard Kipling The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Ghost Stories
17. Jack London Call of the Wild
18. Mark Twain Christian Science
19. Charles Dickens The Pickwick Papers
20. Herman Melville Moby Dick
I think that may be all of them, or I could have forgotten some.
28. Richard Adamns Watership Down Had never read it before and actually really enjoyed it.
29. Ernest Cline Ready Player One Not very well written, but will fill any 80's nostalgia deficiency you're feeling. Billed as a dystopian novel, too many people live happily ever after. Some major plot holes.
really does look like Scott. I couldn't find a good shot head on, but you might be able to picture the white swath running down from the beak as mutton chops.
My brain is strange.
The bird is a juvenile Rose Breasted Grossbeak.
20. Iain Sproat Wodehouse at War Interesting and quiet readable for something that is basically a history book of a very tiny slice of history. Sad that it happened at all.
21. Marilyn Duckworth Pulling Faces Got this through a "random giving". Tries too hard to be art. Written in '87 as near future (1999). At first it was only fun to make fun of the writing, then in the middle I was just waiting to see if anything happened. At the end it did, but an end that could only be loved by a nihilist.
No pictures of the peaks because I did the high stuff solo and didn't think to take a camera with me.
Now I've only got three trails on the main part of the mountain I haven't climbed: Abol, Dudley, and Saddle. Abol is closed at present due to a rockslide wiping out the trail. I'm thinking next year I may do Dudley and if the weather is perfect combine it with Saddle. We'll see how I feel.
