What I Read Last Year

Got this idea from 100 Books in 2007 by the owner of Park Road Books, in Charlotte, N.C. So he lists what he read in ’06. I thought I’d see what I can remember that I read. I may keep adding to this as I remember things I read earlier last year.

  1. I did this last year, and it just totally annoyed me because I kept thinking of more to add to the list, except by then the post was off my main page, so I didn’t, but I kept thinking, geez, I read like four times that many books, and now this INCOMPLETE LIST IS JUST OUT THERE… enough to send a highly organized person into a panic, I tell you. So, I’m not doing it. Nuh-uh.

    And why is contrary cat not in red?
