Books I Read, 2008

This one might take awhile, but will be useful to me in various ways, even if it doesn't turn out to be interesting to anyone else. Some of these still need to be officially reviewed for Love2learn. It seems like it's been a slow year in the writing (especially reviewing) department. I also started and didn't finish quite a few books. I've read lots of picture books too, of course, just a little too difficult to keep track of. :)
