2007 Books

In 2006, inspired by Kevin Drum, I decided to write down all the books I read during the year. I'm a slacker though so I never posted 2006's list. Below is my list of books from 2007, in the order I read them. Appearance on the list does not imply endorsement. Some of them were terrible!
