Books read in the last year

Books read in 2007:

I read some children’s literature with and for the children in my life. The rest is usually science fiction, mysteries, or nonfiction. I read for interest, not edification. I also read about one book-length collection of science fiction per month, as well as online science news and researching technical subjects for my profession.
