Ooooo so many of my favorite books on your list. I've got Life of Pi on my nightstand right now.

Have you seen this? I'm debating whether I want to try it this year or not - kind of daunting.http://susanflynn.blogspot.com/2007/10/updated-888-book-list.html

You did a MUCH better job on your classic book list than me this year. I spent the summer going through a weird mysteries phase, so all the books i read for like 3 months were NOT on any of my lists.
