SPFBO 2016 – The Order Of Things

I’m finally getting around to listing how I plan to tackle my list of books, the order I will be reading them in, groupings, and whatever else. I didn’t group these by any system other than saying, “Hey husband, pick six numbers between one and thirty.” I will do what I did last year, and give each book a mini-award, and I will do brief reviews of each book, even if I didn’t finish them. In that case I will say what it was that stopped me from finishing it. I will be constructive, because what’s the point of any of this if I’m not. Click on the links for each book to learn more about them.

Some groups might not take as much time for me to get through. Two weeks per group is a pretty wide margin, but life happens and I’m running two websites now so I’m giving myself a goal date for each group. I might discuss a group sooner than the date, but I absolutely will have it talked about on the website by the date I list under each group (unless something happens, in which case I’ll be honest about the need to push the date back and my estimation for how far back I need to push it – sorry folks, but that’s the best I can do with my various medical complexities). Honestly, if life stays on a low medical keel (for me), then I anticipate that it won’t take me this long to get through each group. It all just depends on my fantastic falling apart body, and whether or not it has other plans for me.

Full disclosure, I think I went through my list and fixed any errors, but I’m tired. If anyone sees books listed twice, then let me know and I’ll fix it.

Also, for fun, Mark Lawrence is listing the top three covers from all of us who are doing the SPFBO. Check it out.
