Year-End Review
Well, I won't be reading any more books for 2007 (or, completing any, anyway), so I didn't reach my goal of reading 52 books in the year. But, I did complete several "chunky" books, like "Middlemarch", "Passage", and "The Bible". That took up a good portion of my time, as did the reading slump I went through, part-way through the year. :-?

For next year's reading log, I've got a new blog! Please visit The Book Zone to see what I'll read in 2008, and to keep up to date with the other bookish things of my reading life! ;)

Lastly, for a complete overview of what I read in 2007, please visit my Reading Through the Years blog! :)

Thanks for being a faithful reader!
