How many have I read? None.

How many have I even heard of? Two.

I miss the old days.

I'm betting George Kelley has read all of them.

I read a lot of non-fiction (mostly history and economics); I subscribe to and read the New York Review of Books and I read the book reviews in The New Yorker...I think I had heard of one of these, but I have read none.

I've heard of a few, but haven't read any of them. I think my favorite non-fiction read this year was Steven Johnson's HOW WE GOT TO NOW: SIX INNOVATIONS THAT MADE THE MODERN WORLD. Johnson charts how unforeseen developments in six areas (glass, cold, sound, cleanliness, time, and light) created our modern world. I also enjoyed two Joyce Carol Oates's memoirs: THE LOST LANDSCAPE and A WIDOW'S STORY.
