6 month synopsis

Listed below are the titles I read between July and December of 2008. This is not a linked list. In addition are six titles that were either DNFs (did not finish) or wallbangers. Most of the titles have been reviewed and can be found in the archive listing in the column on the left. Roughly 14 of the titles I finished and a few of the DNFs were not reviewed. If I can find my notes I plan to eventually review the ones I finished in 2009.
