I have finally archived my Books Read List for 2008 and started a new one for 2009. Whew, that took a bit of html fiddling. Here it is – just to flash before your eyes before it gets stored. (It can still be accessed through my Read Page or through the sidebar.)

This would be a great time (and place) to recommend a book for me to read (even if you have already). Read something good lately?

My (incomplete,  sorry) book list for 2008: I also filled in the gaps with the New Yorker, Artforum, Mothering, Martha Stewart Living , Dwell, KoreAm, and Vogue – as far as print goes. Damn, I got a lot of magazines… To view my cyber reading habits, look under my Links page. You can see my Books Read 2007 list here.
