thanks for your 2008 list! I have a feeling that if I read more books recommended by you, I'd find more books I like. I am kind of in between books right now. (Meaning I'm only reading one, and I only have one book on CD ready to listen to.) So I'm at a fun place where I get to pick where to go from here. I want to start by finishing series that I've started and not finished and by reading the rest of the books my mother-in-law lent me before her mission more than a year ago. After that, I think I'll be back to this list. So I might have a few questions about how you liked some things. Good luck on your goal in 2009! I love reading about other people who love to read as much as I do.
