    Lots of time in Switzerland to listen. Plus the drive to and from VP, several plane rides, and the better part of a week with no power, but a working Cellphone. Once it got dark, it was try to do stuff by flashlight, or just listen to the headphones. Plus, you know, the commute. But that’s an update that probably starts about the end of August.

    There was a sale on most of the audio books, so I got most of them for $5 or less. Plus, James Marsters is the reader. And he’s brilliant at it. (Except for Ghost Story, which was a shame. He had a scheduling conflict and couldn’t do it.)

    43. Ghost Story, by Jim Butcher. This one I read the physical book again to check on some things I wasn’t sure if I’d missed.
    44. Cold Days, by Jim Butcher audio edition. Couldn’t help myself. Was going to wait longer before going back and listening, but had to experience it again through the audiobook. Worth every moment.

    And that should be all the Jim Butcher for the year, since that’s all the Dresden books.

    45. The Godwulf Manuscript, by Robert B. Parker. I read this one because Butcher talks about Parker as one of his inspirations/influences as a writer and in particular his character Spenser. I was familiar with the character from the TV show, but wanted to read the original work to see how it matches up. Wow. You could really see how Spenser is a template for Dresden. Not identical characters by any stretch, but the bones of Dresden are there. The wisecracking. The inability to cowtow to those in power. The getting into situations a bit tougher than expected. Worth taking a peek.

    About 10 months worth of Comics. And lots of random short stories throughout the year.

    I’d say that counts!
