The Clock is Ticking...

...Down to 2007, at which point our Fifty Books Project will actually begin. It's a simple idea really: The six of us (and any more that may decide to join later) have all agreed to make a new year's resolution to read fifty books in the year 2007. This website is to track our progress and to talk about the books we've read.

Hopefully the first book post will be up in a few days. Until then, check out where Brent, Carlton and I write at http://www.firesideometer.com.

Happy New Year!
