22. Red Pyramid, by Rick Riordan

I loved the Percy Jackson books, and I liked the first book in the new Half-Bloods series. This one just didn't do it for me. It's written well enough, but I just don't think this series is for me. I'll probably read the rest, but I'll really be hoping for the next book with the demigods. It's probably partly because I've never cared all that much for Egyptian mythology, and partly because I just don't like Carter and Sadie as much as I have his other protagonists. Nothing against Carter, but he's no Percy or Jason, and Sadie is no Annabeth or Piper. The baboon probably wasn't helping matters any.

23. Drink: A Cultural History of Alcohol, by Iain Gately

The entire history of alcohol in 500 pages? It's very thin in spots, of course, but that's because it's just trying to fit in way too much. An enjoyable read, but I probably would have liked it even more if I hadn't already read full-length books on whiskey, rum, gin, wine and absinthe already. I certainly read a lot of books on booze for somebody who doesn't drink.

24. Moose, by Kevin Jackson
25. Horse, by Elaine Walker
26. Penguin, by Stephen Martin

A good set of the Animal books. Horse could use a little more space to fully develop, but I've got a longer book lined up for that.
