2007 - A year in review

I know, I know...this should have been on my blog around 1 the 1st (I admit I forgot I hadn't finihsed the post. haha!) Better late than never, right?

Below you will find a list of all the books I read this year. I don't make lists of my top 10 or favorite books, etc. I find that when people do that and I read books on their top lists, I am usually disappointed. So, to keep from disapointed my faithful readers, you get no favorites list.

Now, my plans for my 2007 reading scrapbook are to have a picture of one book that stood out that month. It could be because it's a favorite series and I was looking forward to it, or it could be because it made me think. I plan to post pictures of the scrapbook pages once I'm finished, just don't expect them any time soon. :)

The books are in order of when I read them, not how much I liked them. It's always fun going back and looking at the complete list, because books I read in January are usually still fresh in my mind. I usually thing I read them much later in the year. Then there are others that I go back to and say oh - I forgot I read that one.

Here is to one heck of a reading year for 2007 and looking forward to a great reading year in 2008.

cessie said... have been reading *a lot* in 2007, and a lot of interesting books too! My 2007 was a bit disappointing book wise. One of my goals is to read more this year ;-)
