Here we go again. It's 2019 and time to reset the book reading challenge. Let's all try to read one book a week this year, but if that's too much just list whatever you read because reading is fun. Also, try to rate the books you finish from 1 to 10 so other people can see what might be a good book to pick up.

1) Abomination - Gary Whitta - 7/10
2) Currently Reading - Thin Air - Richard K. Morgan

I won't be able to keep up with this, but thought I'd share. I'm usually a prolific reader but in the last couple years I have not dedicated the time to reading. Last year I only completed Ready Player One, and that took me like six months from start to finish. My wife and kids both read it in that time and were just waiting for me so we could watch the movie, which we already had. I read it after Christmas and we finally watched the movie (ugh).

As a Christmas gift I got the first three books of the Expanse trilogy. Starting 1/1/19 I sat down and started reading Leviathan Wakes. It was a fucking page turner and I stayed up until 1 or later on a couple of nights and finished it in five days. I'm on to book two now hope I can keep up the momentum. Either way I've already surpassed my reading of 2018, which is both good and bad. Anyways sorry for the blog post.

1) Leviathan Wakes - James S.A Corey - 9/10
