Book Log

I read a lot. I've been keeping a book log since the beginning of 1999. I've read 1855 books since then (about 92 books per year).

Below is the list for this year. See complete list.

Currently Reading

1984
by George Orwell I know I've read this book before, but it's not in my records, so it must have been before 1999. I wanted to re-read it because I wanted to examine the role of Newspeak in the dystopian society depicted by the book. Also, I just read another famous book by Orwell (Burmese Days). Earlier this year I read another famous dystopia (Brave New World).
Organizational Theory, Design, and Change (7th ed.)
by Gareth R. Jones I got a good price on this textbook even though it seems to be the current edition. Seems like an interesting subject.
