I guess I've got some work to do (finishing this list) before I get to work (reading). Maybe Matt and I can split up the list, 4 books each category. Thanks Leah for the motivation!

this looks like a good idea! So you finish off the list and then read them all in 2008? Do you have to read them in any order or in any particular length of time?? I'm so bad with finishing books, so we should totally do this!

yeah! You are doing it!

Did you know that chapter books you read aloud to kids and audiobooks can count too?
