2007 Books

And here's my book list for 2007. This, like the movie list does not include any books I didn't finish. It also doesn't include any cookbooks I read.
(R) means repeat reading.
Still sick, but feeling better this morning! I'm going to attempt a shower and some cleaning. Then I'll be sitting down with the computer to visit blogs and see what's been going on with you in the last few months. :) See you tomorrow for the last day of '07.

A greta list - your tastes are all over the place. I'm like that as well; there are times when I want to expand my mind and there are times I want to read pure crap!

I fear my reading is way to limited now.
Really enjoyed your new year's meme!
Wishing you all good things Sara!

You have done a lot of reading this past year!
I have read some of these myself, and will have to check a few of these others out.

Happy New Year!

I love your list and I am very impressed you were able to read as much. I am a quick reader and I am not sure I read as many books!
