I almost forgot I meant to do this at the end of each month.
Best Book of the Month: The Night Watch, Sarah Waters
Runners-Up: The Brief History of the Dead, Kevin Brockmeier; After, Francine Prose
The Don't Bother Award: The Fermata, Nicholson Baker
Recommendations of Specific Books to Specific People Who May or May Not Read This Journal: rolypolypony should read Alice MacLeod, Realist At Last, and I think amyura might like Saying Grace, maybe. Also, he might kill me for saying it, but I get the feeling mitdasein might like The Fermata more than I did. (This is not meant as an insult, really - perhaps I would do better to phrase it as "I would be interested to see if mitdasein would like The Fermata any better than I did." That's more what I mean anyway.)
Number of Books Read This Month: 17
Anything else that should go in this post? I can't really think of anything.
