Reading report for December 2008

I finished a total of 16 books in December, in a variety of genres. Only 2 were ones I had started in a previous month, which makes for a pretty good page count, but has not considerably lessened the pile of partially read books strewn around my apartment. I discovered to my dismay that I forgot my annual Christmas-time reading of Dickens' Christmas Carol, but I did read 6 Christmas-themed books, so that's a consolation.

Marian Babson: The Twelve Deaths of Christmas (Christmas mystery)
Suzanne Brockmann: Frisco's Kid (Contemporary romance)
Augusteen Burroughs: Running With Scissors (Memoir)
Mary & Carol Higgins Clark: Deck The Halls and The Christmas Thief (Christmas mystery)
Michael Connelly: Crime Beat: True Stories of Cops and Killers (Collection of newspaper articles)
Jennifer Crusie: Manhunting (Contemporary romance)
Erik Durschmied: The Hinge Factor (Military history)
Jason Goodwin: The Janissary Tree (Historical mystery thriller)
Faye Kellerman: The Ritual Bath (Mystery)
Dervla Murphy: On a Shoestring to Coorg (Travelogue)
Qiu Xiaolong: A Loyal Character Dancer (Mystery)
Various (Cach, Ashley, Neale): Christmas Cards from the Edge (Christmas romance)
Various (Greenwood, Harte, Craig, Johnston): Winter Wonderland (Christmas romance)
Patricia Warren: Tales From the Country Matchmaker (Memoir)
Connie Willis: Miracle and other Christmas Stories (Christmas fantasy stories)

P.S. I’m working on the annual reading report. All I have to say for now is that I seem to have finished 152 books in 2008.
