Books Read in 2010: "Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase For Lincoln's Killer" by James L. Swanson

James L. Swanson's website.

I meant to read this last year, but when I started it, I found a reproduction of the cover for this book inside, and I wound up reading that first.

Books Read in 2010: "I Drink For A Reason" by David Cross

Audiobook again, but unabridged AND read by the author WITH occasional reprimands from said author as to the listener's laziness in not just reading the damn book.

Books Read in 2010: "The Golden Compass" by Philip Pullman

Read by the author (among others), but unabridged as well. FTW!

I'e been listening to this, off and on, for the last several months. I'd read the print edition about 10 years ago, as well as the second book in the series, but never quite got around to the third one. I have books two and three downloaded already, and I'll see when I can get around to them.

I found it a little slow going, to tell the truth. I remembered the gist of the story from the last time I read it, but it seemed to take forever to get to the point, which may be why I took several breaks from reading/listening to it.
