The Books You've Read in 2007 thread seemed to go well, and I'm endeavoring to read more this year, so I'll give a 2008 version a kickstart. I'll just borrow from Walter's starting post from 2007 to get going: The Android's Dream by John Scalzi -- A very fun, hard to put down SF book. Recommended. A Grey Moon over China by Thomas A. Day -- The plot, the core story, was interesting -- a man's desire to escape Earth and its pains, wars, evils leads to pain, war, and evil. But the writing was middling; it had three times the pages it needed and yet never seemed to say enough to be clear about what was happening. This is a "C" for me.
