      1. Cheers Jose Ignacio! I do miss the ease of operation of the old Friendfeed, but with the winter nights closing in I will try and get used to Facebook.

  1. I’ve only read one – Johan Theorin’s The Voices Beyond, which I thought was a great book. It’ll be hard to beat, I think. Snowblind is on my TBR too – otherwise I’m not sure how many I’d be able to fit in, but several are tempting… thanks for the list!
