Books read in 2007

This is the first year I kept a running list of all the books I've read during the year. But the year isn't over yet, and I may well add to it over the next day or so.

You can see in the side bar that I've read quite alot. I've stopped reading alot of other ones, too -- too bored with them to finish.

When I read, I really read. I read to savor every word. I don't fly through just to get it done. I want to revel in a great story.

Most of what I've read this year has been great. Some only good. A few I finished out of sheer will power.

I'm going to blog sometime between now and New Year's Eve on the books I've read this year that meant the most to me and why. I'm also going to put up a separate blog about what books I'm hoping to add to my list for 2008.

I want to challenge you to blog about the books you've read that really meant something to you this year -- the ones that grabbed you with a darn good story or at least had you staying up too late and turning pages too fast.

Also blog about your TBR list for 2008. What are you determined to read in your current pile? What are you waiting on pins and needles to buy?

Happy reading. Macy

Twilight is at the top of my list. I'm going on a cruise next week and I'm bringing that and its sequel New Moon.

Let me know what you think of it. I couldn't read either of them fast enough.
I'm trying to hold off on Eclipse as a writing reward, but it sits so close to my computer desk that I keep sneaking peeks at it.
And it doesn't help that I frequently read the end first (yes, shoot me) and the end to Eclipse looks sooooooooo good.

Have fun on your cruise!!!!!!!!!

I started Twilight but DD had to return it to her friend. I'd love to finish it and read the next Tate Hallaway book when it comes out - loved Dead Sexy and Tall, Dark and Dead.
