Karina (karinargh) Reading ambitions for 2011 include:

- Read at least 10 Hugo award winners
- Read all this year's Hugo nominees (novels)
- Get around to reading one of the several(!) copies of The Illuminatus! Trilogy I've owned for years and still not read

I'm a big fan of PKD, but it requires a certain taste for paranoid/psychedelic science fiction. Would recommend starting with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.


Karina (karinargh) There, that's 100!
