Book list - Aug 11

Ghost Story - modern fantasy, by Jim Butcher
The Old Buzzard Had It Coming - historical mystery, by Donis Casey
Wolf - YA, by Gillian Cross (Carnegie Medal, 1990)
Aliens on Vacation - children's SF, by Clete Barrett Smith

Eleven books last month, one of them a reread (marked by an asterisk). I'm not setting an official goal this year, though I do expect to read around 200 books.

The one Carnegie Medal winner brings me up to 56 of 72. I regret to say that I didn't make note of which library to thank for the ILL.

Which ones were your favorites?
The only one I've read is Alas, Babylon.

I usually save the "favourites" list for the yearly recap, but you can always assume that the ones I post pictures of fall into that category. Alas, Babylon is another favourite - this must be the fifth or sixth time I've read it. The Donis Casey mysteries (starring Oklahoma farm wife Alafair Tucker) were also very good.
