At home we had our twelfth wedding anniversary. I got a nice pic of young F in the cupola of the Bozar museum in Brussels, the royal palace in the background.
F meanwhile was occasionally commandeering my camera to take pictures of other family members.
Due to less international travel, and commuting by car, I read only 10 books in October 2005.

Links above to my reviews, below to Amazon.
The best of these was Better to Have Loved: The Life of Judith Merril, which won the Hugo for Best Related Work that year. You can get it here. I'm not going to pick on those I didn't like; three others that I did like were Terry Patrchett's Going Postal, which you can get here, Charles Stross's The Clan Corporate, which you can get here in omnibus, and Thammy Evans' Macedonia Travel Guide, which you can get (in a newer and retitled edition) here.
