Beyond that, there is a new bar that shows some news items that I have found interesting. The most recent items that I share in Google Reader will show up in that bar. Items may range from the most recent space news, to art sales, to whatever.
Finally, I am once again keeping a list of books I have finished either reading or listening to in 2008. You can keep track of my progress throughout the year. Last year I fell off from updating the list, I hope to do better this year. Currently I am in the middle of reading the following books (yes all at the same time), so PLEASE, no spoilers:
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (started in 2007)
- The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
- The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanly Robinson (started in 2007)
- The China Road by Rob Gifford (audio)
