26 books 2008: May

Five more books in May brings me to 23 for the year so far. I didn't reach that mark until the end of July last year so I'm two months ahead of the 2007 total. However, I'm now juggling two thousand-page-plus monsters so I'll be lucky if I finish even one book in June. We'll see. Book 19: Wash This Blood Clean From My Hand by Fred Vargas Book 20: How Fiction Works by James Wood Book 21: Almost Blue by Carlo Lucarelli Book 22: The Man on the Balcony by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo Book 23: Un Lun Dun by China Mieville
