Reading in 2008

I think this may be an all-time low in the number of books I have read in a year. It also doesn't reflect the books I partially read and either gave up on or had to return to the library before it was finished. I do plan on finishing Animal Vegetable Miracle one day. I really do. I had planned to read Nabokov this year, but alas, Speak Memory is still unfinished. I may be able to get it in under the wire.

My new discovery this year was Tom Perrotta who is one of my new favorites. I have also started reading the Harry Potter series with Garrett, which is not reflected on this list.
