My 2008 Book List

I did not complete my 50 Book Challenge for last year. I only reached 48, but that is because I chose to read a 500 page book at the end instead of picking shorter books and we went out of town to stay with my father for the holidays instead of staying home. Although there is car reading I find it a little harder to get it hours of reading when relatives are stopping by. My selection was the Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I really enjoyed it so although I didn't meet my goal I had a great read at the end.
