"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Books and Manga Read in 2007

In my heart-of-hearts, I'd rather keep this list to myself. 2007 was not, for a myriad of reasons, a particularly good year for me. As such, I didn't do nearly as much reading (or reviewing!) as is customary, and the vast majority of what I did read was garbage. Though I did manage a plethora of wonderful scholarly texts late in the year.

But I know some people want to see it anyway, so, with no further ado:

I'm amazed you finish them all. If I don't like a book I stop reading and give it away to a friend who might like it.
And you're way more organised with your list. Impressive.

I'm only listing the books I finished! I read portions of a lot of other books (especially in the context of school)...and there were things I was just incapable of finishing.
