I've been meaning to make a similar entry as way to keep track. I was tempted by the 50 in 2007 lj community, but I suspect I read way more than 50 books a year and would just irritate people there. I think a list is a grand idea though.

Those look like interesting books -- and I'm always happy to see people reading several books at one time. My husband reads one book start to finish then picks up the next one. I usually have two or three going, and I choose one depending on my mood.
