Thursday reading

One thing I've been doing this week is polishing off the Clarke Award backlist, reading the first 50 pages of books that I had not got around to earlier in the process. One of them was so enjoyable that I read it to the end, but it was clearly not science fiction. None of the others were shortlist material either. Just a few more to go...

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy (a chapter a day)
Watership Down, by Richard Adams (a chapter a week)
Scales of Gold, by Dorothy Dunnett
Here's One I Wrote Earlier, by Peter Purves
