2007 Book List

How could I resist the temptation to do it again? Do you have any idea how many books I winnowed out of the stacks after the last Readathon? Gone all the tacky "Who Really Murdered Jon Benet/Nicole Simpson/The Abominable Snowman," parts I through XXVII. There's room for the existing stacks of books. Less dust. The shelves are tidy.

Fewer "death and destruction" books on this list, too. I can learn.
