Pick of the month: Feed by M. T. Anderson.  Feed is great, but it was a reread, so I kinda wanted to pick something else this month.  But though I read some good stuff (The Furies, The Little Endless Storybook), Feed is great and easily stands above everything else here. (This is the second time Anderson has received this most prestigious award.)

All books read:
1. The Problems of Philosophy by Bertrand Russell 
2. Feed by M. T. Anderson
3. JLA: Strength in Numbers by Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, and Christopher Priest
4. The Sandman Presents: The Furies by Mike Carey
5. Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Krypton Can Teach Us About Being Human by Grant Morrison
6. JSA: Justice Be Done by James Robinson and David S. Goyer
7. Shine: An Anthology of Near-future, Optimistic Science Fiction edited by Jetse de Vries
8. The Sandman Presents: Taller Tales by Bill Willingham
9. Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes by Michael Schuster and Steve Mollmann
10. The Little Endless Storybook by Jill Thompson

All books acquired:
1. The Annotated Snark: The Full Text of Lewis Carroll’s Great Nonsense Epic The Hunting of the Snark and the original illustrations by Henry Holiday edited by Martin Gardner
2. The Prince, 1640: A Scolar Press Facsimile by Niccolo Machiavelli*
3. Sense of Wonder: A Century of Science Fiction edited by Leigh Ronald Grossman
4. The Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas de Quincey
5. Doctor Who Storybook 2007 edited by Clayton Hickman
6. Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes by Michael Schuster and Steve Mollmann

8. Starslip Crisis, Volume 3 by Kristofer Straub
9. Starslip: A Completely Accurate Portrayal of the Future by Kris Straub
 
* This is a facsimile edition of the original translation of The Prince into English.  The cover reproduces the title page of the original book, which is alas not the title page of my edition.  The full title of the book in all its glory is Nicholas Machiavel's Prince. Also, The life of Caſtruccio Caſtracani of Lucca. And The meanes Duke Valentine us'd to put to death Vitellozzo Vitelli, Oliverotto of Fermo, Paul, and the Duke of Gravina. Tranſlated out of Italian into Engliſh; By E. D. With ſome Animadverſions noting and taxing his errours.  God, I wish I could justfy putting that into my LibraryThing!

Books remaining on "To be read" list: 343
