Book List 2007

I read. Which should be terribly obvious, since I post about reading every week. And I’m an English Major. So I do love books.I’ve always wanted to keep a list of all the books I read in a year. I knew it was going to be far more than 52 (I hit that goal in April), but I have no idea just how many it’s going to be. Keeping a list right along with me is one of my best friends, and future roommate ME. I can’t get her to update her blog more often, but usually I can harrass her into at least updating her book list. She hit her goal of 52 a full month before I did.I read a lot of different things–and am fond of saying I’ll read anything that’s put in front of me. Which is so terribly true. If you’ve got a book you think I absolutely must read, let me know.
