I wrote the review for the 19th "notable book" that I read this year. That is, the nineteenth that was on one of the "notable books of 2007" lists on the reading challenge blog I joined. I challenged myself to read 20 and now it looks like I will succeed. One more!

The blog rules have changed, starting next year. Now there won't be deadlines and we can choose from any of the notable lists - 2007, 2008, and so on. I think this will work really well because there are several I still want to read from previous lists. And I won't feel the time pressure, which allows me to enjoy each book more.

Nevertheless, I am proud of myself for reading so many from these lists in one year. I read a great deal more than books from these lists, of course, which is why it was a challenge for me to stay on course.
