2007: Book Reflections

Here it is, the last of my 2007 posts. Happy dance! It took me a month into 2008 to get this posted, but here it is at last.

The purpose of this post is to look back on the things I read in 2007. It was certainly a busy year for me; I read 115 books totaling over 21,000 pages. That’s a lot of reading. And yet, I’m still playing catch-up… *sigh*

Here’s a list of my favorites from this year. Yes, I know that I haven’t written reviews for many of these yet, but they are coming! And while you wait for the reviews, you may want to click over and check the books out on anyway. Trust me, these are all worth reading.

And for those of you who are wondering just where all those pages came from…here’s a (mostly) complete slideshow of everything I read! I didn’t include those things which aren’t on (for obvious reasons) but it’s still a pretty big list. If nothing else, I like watching just to revel in the sheer numbers of these books…
