WOW 19,373 pages, that's impressive! I've never thought to keep track, I think this year I just may?

I recently read Jellicoe Road, and I loved it. Not my usual happy-happy book, but it was written so well and is very intriguing. I read it in one day on our road trip to Nebraska, but then kept picking it up again throughout the next two weeks! I finally had to return it to the library, but it's now on my "books-I-want" list on goodreads.

Some of my favs are yours too.
I of course would have The twilight Series as my favorite books of 2008.
