10 years of tracking reads

Happy last day of 2007!

This month marks the tenth anniversary of my keeping a list of every book I read -- the grand total: I've read 691 books in ten years, 96 this year alone. I've had lots of fun this week looking back at a decade of reading habits.

Here's your top-ten list for 2007: my favorite fiction over the past decade -- I had to narrow the choices down somehow, so these were all newly published in the year I read them:

2007 - Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
2006 - The Game by Laurie R King
2005 - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
2004 - The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
2003 - Atonement by Ian McEwan
2002 - The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon
2001 - The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
2000 - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling
1999 - The Hours by Michael Cunningham
1998 - Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Happy reading! Happy 2008!
