A Year in Literature: Christopher Nosnibor’s 2010 Read-a-thon

So after a couple of years during which reading for pleasure took very much a back seat in my life, I vowed that in 2010 I would make time for books once more. After all, despite having all but stopped reading for pleasure (that isn’t to say the books I had to read weren’t pleasurable, but simply that after studying for several hours straight, my brain was too fried and my eyes too shot to read more), my book purchasing continued unabated during this time.

During the last 12 months, my to-read pile has continued to grow, albeit at a slower rate, since I have been slowly chiselling away at the stack of unread tomes that have accumulated in my home office. Since January 1st, 2010, I have fed my head with the following works… and it feels good!

 

J G Ballard – Millennium People
Richard Allen – Complete Vol 3 –     Trouble for Skinhead / Skinhead Farewell /                       Top Gear Skin
Philip Sidney – The Defence of Poesy and Selected Renaissance Literary Criticism
Raymond Chandler – The Lady in the Lake
Toby Litt – Ghost Story
Mickey Spillane – The Snake
Chuck Palahniuk – Snuff
Alain Robbe-Grillet – In the Labyrinth
Chuck Palahniuk – Choke
Phil Baker – William S. Burroughs
Chuck Palahniuk – Haunted
Stewart Home – Blood Rites of the Bourgeoisie
Ian Rankin – A Cool Head
David Conway – Metal Sushi
Stewart Home – The Assault on Culture
Alex Garland – The Coma
Arthur Nersesian – Unlubricated
Donald Ray Pollock – Knockemstiff
Vincent Clasper – Kicks
J G Ballard – The Atrocity Exhibition
Ian Crofton – Nettle Knickers and Exploding Toads
Brian Masters – Killing for Company
Ed McBain – The Empty Hours
Various – Paroxysm
Lee Rourke – The Canal
Henry Millers – Plexus
