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.)
