2007 Book Poll
OK, it's time for the annual book poll. I only read 79 books this year, compared to last year's 86, but I ascribe that to some long books and a lot of traveling in August when I read only three books in the whole month. I'm also surprised at how much genre fiction I read, but a lot of those books are really fast reads (I think I read the whole five books of the Time Quartet in three days).

(Apologies: I left out a lot of books, and therefore had to restart the poll.)

Hi, thanks for the add. I've done the same. Based on the schools you attended we might have other friends in common.
