Over at the pixelatedgeek.com offices, there’s been a lot of talk about Holiday Gift Guides and presenting a list for every category of entertainment. As one of the book reviewers, I couldn’t make up my mind: do I list a bunch of great books I’ve already read, or do I review the new books that have everybody excited? I figured the second would be more fun, except for the fact that there’s no way I can finish reading enough books between now and Christmas to make a worthwhile list.
I read pretty fast, but I can’t read that many books in time. But I can certainly read parts of many books.
On that note I bring you “Ten Books, a Thousand Pages.” I’ve picked ten books and read the first hundred pages of each title. Some might argue that a hundred pages isn’t a fair assessment of a book (what if it’s a terrible book with a great ending?) but I think that far into a book, you’ll either love it enough to continue or quietly put it down and go find something you like better.
