    Wow, you got a lot more reading done than I did! I’m trying to read more in 2008. And with that said, I’m off to bed to read! 🙂

    Very impressive! You must be one of those speed readers! Thanks for the add, and we’re enjoying yours as well!

    Congrats! I got too busy and hit a rare not in the mood to read streak as I got later into fall and closer to the Holidays. I did write a book though – does that count? 🙂 All in all I think I read 43 or something books, but I think there are some I forgot to write down. It will be fun to see what we read this coming year! 🙂 Happy reading!

    Hi guys… I finally finished The Poisonwood Bible. Well written, but not my style. But I was bound and determined to finish it. Sadly, with my hectic life among 2 children, it has taken me a month to get through it. I think part of that was because I wasn’t too excited about the book and didn’t have that burning desire to read it. That being said, I have started on a new book that is not as lengthy and am already a third done.
