This is the year I read a lot of comic books (thanks to my Galaxy Tab purchase – it’s mighty hard to carry around 60-plus issues of anything, no matter how engrossing).
What are your favorite books this year? Here are mine:
A Visit from the Goon Squad Jennifer Egan
The Name of the Wind Patrick Rothfuss
Wise Man’s Fear Patrick Rothfuss
Full Dark, No Stars Stephen King
Preacher Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon
Pyongyang Guy Delisle
Fun Home Alison Bechdel
Ex Machina Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris
Daytripper by Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon
Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan Bob Ong
Zoo City Lauren Beukes
Moxyland Lauren Beukes
Elmer Gerry Alanguilan
The Bell Jar Sylvia Plath
Glass Soup Jonathan Carroll
Faithful Place Tana French
The Pull of the Moon Elizabeth Berg
The Tesseract Alex Garland
A Feast for Crows George RR Martin
The Kobayashi Maru of Love Carljoe Javier
Showbiz Lengua Jose Lacaba
Our Story Begins Tobias Wolff
Bone Jeff Smith
And here are ongoing comic book series that I’ve dipped into and I think are worth following:
The Walking Dead

Nice list! want to throw in Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Where Good Ideas Come from by Steven Johnson, and the new X-Men series Wolverine and the X-Men as must reads. Along with about half of DC’s Nu52!
Thanks for the recos! :D
That’s the reason I plan on getting a tab, too: comic books! But isn’t it difficult to read with the Galaxy tab screen? It looks a bit small for comic books.
Nope, it’s just right! Not as big as the iPad screen of course, but it works perfectly for me. :) Bili naaaa haha.
