I’ve started listening to Neil Gaiman’s “author’s preferred text” of American Gods, something I last read when it first came out in 2001, but I’m not sure if I will finish it before the end of the year. I mentioned in an earlier post my 6 favorite reads from 2014. And I’ve already got quite a few books that I’m looking forward to in 2015.

  1. My reading accomplishment in terms of size is larger than yours, but you are making me hunger to go through Durant again. And to do more NF in general.
