Book Reads in April, 2016

It's another month, and relatively early in the month. Thus, as is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my April, 2016 reads.

And that's how my reading for 2016 continued in the fourth month of the year. Truthfully, I was a bit surprised how much reading I got done in April, but for a chunk of the month I was pretty ill and had a lot of time to read, and I was rather pleased at the variety of the reading that I did during the month. It also reminded me that when I don't read a lot of roleplaying game stuff, I do actually read quite a few other books during the course of the month. :) Yes, there's a lot of Alastair Reynolds books in the month, but I needed to make a dent in that queue of books. My favourite books for the month were The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell, a witty book that is well written and had some fascinating subject matter; S.P.Q.R. V: Saturnalia by John Maddox Roberts, which kept his Roman investigator occupied, and had some wonderful material about Roman witches and their deeds; House of Lost Worlds by Richard Conniff, a fascinating work that tells the story of how one museum changed ideas about dinosaurs, dynasties, and even the story of life on earth; and The Rhesus Chart by Charles Stross, in which the authors explores vampires in the context of his Laundry Files series, and Bob Howard's life takes a turn for the worse. Good books, and recommended all of them. Overall, I managed to read 13 novels, 1 RPG and RPG products, 2 magazines, 30 comics, and 0 graphic novels in March. This brings the year total in 2016 to a set of numbers that look like this: 41 books, 5 RPGs and RPG products, 9 magazines, 140 comics, and 0 graphic novels.

Anyway, thoughts and comments are always welcome. :)
