I keep a running list of my Best Books as a sidebar: Best Books of 2006. If you scroll all the way down to my Archives, you'll see a link to my Best Books of 2005.
Some ideas for my Best Books of 2007 List:
Should I include (appropriately marked) books read published in previous years? I read a few non 2006 books this year that I would have loved to add to the current list. Perhaps tow lists, both kept on my sidebar: Best Books of 2007 AND a Best Books Read in 2007?
How long should I keep my Best Books of 2006 going? I am thinking for at least a few months, because (a) I have read books that I intend on adding, I just haven't blogged them yet and (b) I may still be reading some 2006 titles, especially as I hope to read all the Cybils final fives.
Anyhow, here is my current list of Best Books for 2006:
