2007 Post-Mortem

Well, it's been a wonderful year. Those of us remaining have read, between us, 222 books. That only comes to less than 40 books a person, but, hey, that's why there's 2008.

Here is the top ten books I have read in 2007, in descending order of awesomeness, not including re-reads like Huck Finn:

10. The Man Who Was Thursday
by GK Chesterton
9. Vernon God Little
by DBC Pierre
8. The Power and the Glory
by Graham Greene
7. The Road
by Cormac McCarthy
6. A Scanner Darkly
by Philip K. Dick
5. Lolita
by Vladimir Nabokov
4. Money
by Martin Amis
3. Watership Down
by Richard Adams
2. One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest
by Ken Kesey
1. Catcher in the Rye
by JD Salinger

And the bottom of the list...

60. The Children of Men
by PD James
61. Those Who Blink
by William Mills
62. Sexing the Cherry
by Jeanette Winterson

The 222 figure doesn't include Carlton's final book--assuming he finishes it.

Carlton said...

Oh, yeah I finished. With a little over a day to spare, no less.
I like the new colors.

Carlton said...

I am glad that you liked Watership Down. I love that book!
