Books read in 2008

Mid-2008 I signed up for LibraryThing’s 75 books (to read in 2008) challenge. I kept track of my progress here. At the end out of the 76 books I read 43 were children books, so I feel I slightly cheated. But I wrote review of all except three books, here, in LibraryThing or on my library’s blog. Below is the full list. (The links lead to’s page on the book.)
