Steampunk Challenge

I discovered this challenge over at The Bookkeeper. Since this is a genre I recently discovered and want to read more of, I decided to join!

What is Steampunk? According to the New Oxford American Dictionary the sub-genre Steampunk is:

a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.

An example of a steampunk book is Leviathan by Scott Westerfield. The challenge runs from October 2010 to October 2011 and there are no obligations other than to have fun discovering a genre and let other participants know about what you find.

These are the books I'd like to read:
  1. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
  2. Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld

  1. My sirter-in-law and I are writing letters to each other as characters in a steampunk world, and it is a really fun genre. I would recommend the Airborn series by Kenneth Oppel, they are really good.
