Sissy Jacobson's Favorite Reads of 2007
Based on books read in 2007
 
As an avid reader (and sometimes reviewer), I did the unforgivable this past year. I didn't document the books as I read them. First, I wasn't in the mood to read at the beginning of the year. Then I picked up books, old and new, and began to devour them. Who has time to document when there's another book you just have to pick up and start reading as soon as you complete the previous one? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
