Books read in 2010

I had a very slow reading year, this year. Not sure why. Sure, there was the baby, but he didn't show up until October.

Ah well.

As with writing, I hope to accomplish more reading in 2011.

A lot of these I've blogged about over 2010. Some I never got around to commenting on, for whatever reason.

But, here is the list;

+ The White Company by Arthur Conan Doyle (ebook)

+ Nightmares & Dreamscapes by Stephen King

+ Slaine: The Exile by Steven Savile

+ The Sword of Rhiannon (a.k.a. Sea Kings of Mars) by Leigh Brackett

+ The Space Wolf Omnibus (Space Wolf, Ragnar's Claw, Grey Hunter) by William King (Warhammer 40K)

+ The Berserker Throne by Fred Saberhagen (ebook)

+ Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey (audiobook)

+ Of Berserkers, Swords and Vampires by Fred Saberhagen

+ The Sharp End by David Drake (Hammers' Slammers)

+ The Song of Roland (ebook)

+ Barbarians, Marauders & Infidels by Antonio Santosuosso (history) (ebook)

+ The Broken Sword by Poul Anderson

+ Dark Worlds #1 (ezine)

+ Casca: The Warrior (#17) by Barry Sadler

+ War of Art by Steven Pressfield (ebook)

+ Killing Trail by Charles Gramlich (ebook)

+ Steppe by Piers Anthony

I've noted the one audiobook and ebooks, for fun. All ebooks were read on the Kindle except War of Art which was epub format, so I read it on my Mac using the Barnes&Noble Nook reader app. (much nicer on Mac than the PC version, btw)

I noted Dark Worlds ezine because it was fairly large, but I think there are some other e-reads I forgot to note during the year. I need to be better about that in future.

I am surprised I didn't squeeze in at least one Warhammer read. (I did read the one Warhammer 40K omnibus)

My favorites were The Broken Sword and Of Berserkers, Swords and Vampires. Sword of Rhiannon rounds out my top three.

Happy New Year, see you in 2011!


  1. The Broken sword would definitely be number 1 for me too. And The sword of Rhiannon was killer good.

  2. I have the Sword of Rhiannon-I'll have to give it a read in 2011.
