  1. Are these all the books you have read, or merely small list of some of them? 😀

    Hmm. Some of those look pretty good. Any suggestions as to which one I might aspire to read first?

    Just books read in 2008 (it’s all in the title 🙂 ) I wouldn’t know what to recommend as everyone has differing tastes in reading. I did enjoy the Harry Potter series though, if you haven’t read that you should, as the later books are dark, humorous and interesting, and above all, simply great storytelling that doesn’t come along all that often.

  3. Yeah, I remember reading the HP books when they first came out. 😀 If I was to post everything I’ve read this year, wowza, that would be a long one. Lol. You can tell I don’t get out much . . . *wanders off aimlessly in a bath robe as the nurses gently guide another ‘mentally imbalanced’ person down the hallway* 😀 Or something like that.

    I know. I meant, were these all the books you’ve read in 2008, or only a portion of the books you read in 2008. 😀 I’m not that slow.

    Well, I obviously don’t read as much as you do, as this so far, is all of them since the beginning of the year! Although, a few of the titles were pretty hefty tomes of books, such as Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (which is basically three books in one) and took a bit of time to eventually get through, not least because of its dense footnote style. I’m more of a reader that will read a book as much for how it’s written as much as for its content, and so perhaps, read fewer but enjoy them in more detail these days. Either that or I’m just a slow reader! 🙂

  5. Lol. Well, I’d say the fact that I’m one of those people who will definitely forgo most of a night of sleep for a book without any hesitation probably gives me an edge in this department. 😀 I’m too much of a bookworm. But yes, I understand how some books can be pretty hefty. One book, in fact, took me over three months to read once. Whew, that was an exhausting, let me tell you. I’m pretty sure I’m a slow reader too, so it couldn’t possibly be that. 😉

    Ey! I’m the slowest reader here, I’ve only just read your reply… 😉
