I am adding this for Richer and Poorer. What better ways of getting richer than by reading?! Can anyone be poorer by the experience? Hope some of you check out a few books out of this list. Happy reading!
I was behind my target of 150 books to be read in 2008. I read 127, out of which I reviewed 96. I read maximum number of books in June, 26, reviewed 19 and least number of books in August, that is only 1.
I have done a post of putting up the 96 book reviews on my Reading Room. Here I am linking the top reads. Thought why not get my reading here too, once in while.
If interested, do click on the titles to reach my review posts! Enjoy!
