Actually, this section is a bit depressing, because I feel like almost nothing has happened this year, I've been marking time a bit.
Other than that I had some excellent trips to England and saw lots of cool people. I spent the first part of the year hanging out with ploni_bat_ploni, and missed her terribly after she finished her course and left the country. Lots of people unexpectedly turned out to be romantically interested in me, but I stayed single. Oh, and I went to Limmud, but I haven't written that up properly yet.
56 books total this year, 10 of which I haven't got round to reviewing yet. More rereads than usual, cos I ran out of books a bit. But I had good fun rereading Tim Powers' The Anubis Gates, AS Byatt's Babel Tower, JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit, Salman Rushdie's The ground beneath her feet (I finally heard the U2 song that goes with it on Radio Paradise the other week!), and my perennial favourite GB Edwards' The book of Ebenezer Le Page.
