My Top Ten Reads Since January 2007
Today the awesome folks at Broke and Bookish invite us to list our
Top Ten Favorite Books You’ve Read During The Lifespan Of Your Blog
Sometimes books rank higher one day, and lower the next. These are my favorites today. They may vary slightly from my book rankings, but they are all included in the best of my reading from each of the years I have been blogging. Three are non-fiction and the rest are novels, usually large ones, including two trilogies - each counted as one extra-large novel.
I started my blog in earnest January 2007. So these are my Top Ten Reads for the last five and a half years.
