though i think i forgot to keep track july through sept or so, so

no temptation to poll mine, the amount of low-quality skiffy is embarrassing.

only read 'visit from the goon squad' out of this list and i ain't voting for it.

Let's post our librogaphies here and at least pick a best-and-worst then. I'll sort mine out later.

Goon Squad is my only coincidence too. I liked it but it'd be a pointless vote I feel.

thompp id be interested in wut u read

Even Cow Girls Get the Blues the best on this list imo

i really liked the two spiotta books

did not like the windup bird chrons but idk if its the worst

Only read Goon Squad and The Last Tycoon. I'd vote for Goon Squad! (ignores ledge's lowering stare). But more importantly this is reminding me to keep a proper bloody log of what I read this year. I seem to be able to recall reading only two things. Now I know I tailed off a bit at the end of the year, but I don't think things were quite that lenten.

i also read the two spiotta, 'play it as it lays' (lol ilx) and 'the pale king' this year. of those id vote for 'stone arabia' p easily. of all the stuff on the list ive read itd be either 'prep' or the snl oral history i think

This mania for making lists of books is alien to me. Aimless wanders as a cloud, you might say.
