::see those read in 2005 & 2006::

And I'm open to reading suggestions all year, every year.


  1. Yeah...I dunno. I love books and I guess, if you really want to do something, you find time to do it.

  2. I hope you had a good Holiday, I hope you enjoyed the gifts I got you, and, I hope you have a Happy New year!

  3. Thank you! I hope you enjoyed your holidays, too! Happy New Year! ;)

  4. Have you seen LibraryThing? It lets you keep track of the books you read online, see what others are reading, tag your books, write reviews, etc. Kinda fun.

  5. I just got a LibraryThing account! Thank you! ;)
