bluestocking

self-educating 2008: #1-36

I (very annoyingly) lost my list halfway through (saved it on a drive that got corrupted) so this is pieced together from my not-so-great memory and may be missing some :-p Still, 36 books / 12,966 pages is pretty good for a year in which SO MUCH happened! This year AGAIN I will have the goal of posting my booklist once a month (on the 28th), we'll see how it goes.
