I Read a LOT in 2007

75 books this year. That's not bad, considering how much time work and the Boy take up. I figure I manage to read as much as I did in 2007 because I read a lot of books I really liked, which always go much faster. That, and the fact that you can read while sitting or lying down.

Sigh... I started with good intentions of keeping a list of the books I read in 2007, it fell by the wayside after the first week.
I got the 5 Canada Reads 2008 books and my free Canada Reads tote bag

from the CBC shop just before Christmas. http://www.cbcshop.ca/CBC/shopping/boutique.aspx?CatalogName=CBCBase&CategoryName=boutique_canadareads_subroot&lang=en-CA

I thought this year it would be fun to have the 5 books read before the debate begins in February… however; there is also tempting stack of books that I just got from Chapters and another delivery on its way...
