Books Read 2007

it's that time of year again, a list of everything bookish consumed by me over the last 365 days...(check sidebar for past lists)

items on list include chapbooks, graphic novels, lit. mags, poetry books, prose books and drama...(in my notebook these are demarcated by triangles, squares hyhen, X's, P hyphen squares, P superscript 1 squares, P superscript 2 squares)

this seems to have been the year of the novel, particularly "the year of the novel that you were supposed to read as an adolescent but never did because you were too busy "experimenting" and listening to The Doors and Spice 1 and DJ Dan and breaking bones and getting suspended"...novels in this category include 1984, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and The Last Temptation Of Christ among others...

so, in an act of extreme unfairness i'm going to do away with top 3's (see Steve Evans's Attention Span for my top 11) and go straigt for the throat with a #1 pick for each genre of form listed...
