Happy 2010 – December Reads

December was a highly discontent month. Holidays celebrated in drunken Korean fashion, and a stunted, disappointing selection of reading.

BonkBonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex Ironically, this was the most intelligent and engaging book this I read all month. And positively hilarious.
Interview with Mary Roach on Fora TV.

Dork Whore Dork Whore: My Travels Through Asia as a Twenty-Year-Old Pseudo-Virgin Seoul Women’s Bookclub selection of the month. We met at a great coffee shop, but didn’t spend much time talking about the book. How much do you really want to talk about another woman’s sex life, or lack there of, in Asia?

My year in reading:

January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November

I was going back over the months because I’m trying to pick the best book I read in the past year for a game I play on bookobsessed. The year definitely started out fantastic when I was unemployed, reading constantly, and waiting to ship out to Korea, since being here my reading time has dwindled, as has my selection. But overall, not so bad.

Keep up the good work and tell Jim to call. Ha. Love Grandma and
