    Damn, that is impressive. I think I got through twenty, tops. Did you buy them all or go the library route?

    Good job. I've read many of those books, but I spread them out over many, many years.

    Churlita: Thank you. I believe for 2007, I'll read books that in the past I've started and never finished...the great reread of 2007, I'll call it.

    Trixieskips: Oh, you know me...it's Half Price Books all the way.
