favorite books of ’05

in no particular order, gleaned from my media diet (which means there’s a huge chunk missing, mid-Feb through June)….

* 1491
* Lonely Planets
* Conspiracy of Fools
* Necessary Dreams
* The Great Influenza
* Bookmark Now
* Krakatoa

* Singulary Sky & Iron Sunrise
* The Time-traveler’s Wife
* Banewreaker & Godslayer
* The Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad

one thought about the year in books overall: I have no trouble finding out about interesting non-fiction, between the blogs I read and the Daily Show, but I’m often at a loss for picking up good fiction.
