2008

This year I did not read as many books as in previous years, but I've done more writing, so I'd say it, balanced.
I would have to say the best book I read this year was either Ada or Ardor or Of Love and Other Demons. And the worst, Anansi Boys. [I would like to say the worst was Twilight, but it honestly wasn't]
But anyway, here's my list. Please comment, and give me your feedback. =]
