I have fallen behind in posting my book logs. Let's see if I can catch up. Here's what I read in 2014.

(Doesn't include comics, comic book collections, or graphic novels generally, even though something like McCloud's The Sculptor takes enough time to really deserve inclusion. Doesn't include subscriptions to the ACBL Bulletin, The Bridge World, Asimov's Science Fiction or Uncanny. Still less blogs like Making Light or File 770.)
