Books I’ve read in 2007

I’m not actually going to try to come up with a list for the entire year, but I’ve grabbed the books that I’ve gone through in the last couple of months or that I’m reading now. I’ll add a couple books that have been significant to me in the last year that I can recall further back also. But, I’ve had to stop somewhere, and so I know I’ve missed some and listed almost none from more than 6 months ago.

These aren’t necessarily listed in any order other than where they ended up in my stacks.

Okay, I’m just going to stop there. I’d have to list so many, many others if I kept going … It would be interesting to actually keep track of this over the whole of next year.
