Literary Fiber. It's good for you.

I love to read.  I really love to read romance novels.  And if they have a bit of magic in them, all the better.  Romance novels are like eating chocolate.  Delicious, smooth, sweet, blissful.  But sometimes you need something with a little more protein, a few more vitamins, a bit more fiber.

Here's my reading list for my 2012 dose of literary fiber.  (Not including monthly supplements from book club books.)

The City and the City by China Mieville

Embassytown by China Mieville

State of Wonder by Ann Patchett

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke (I'm trying, but oh my goodness, the footnotes are killing me.)

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Arthur and George by Julian Barnes
