Reading Roundup Wrapup: December 2007

At the beginning of last month, I maintained a high reading rate-- about one book per day!  Of course, you shall soon see that wasn't a difficult rate to maintain, though, given the books I read.  The Dragonriders of Pern killed all that, as did Christmas festivities and trips to exotic lands.  Still, I eked my way through a couple more books.

In the month of December, I read fifteen books, and this is what they were:

1. Star Trek: Titan: Sword of Damocles by Geoffrey Thorne
