Sounds interesting. How did you find this? Will this post be updated as you read throughout the year?

It is, it's a graphic novel about a girl's life in Iran. It's really great, and I guess they made it into a movie recently although I haven't seen that yet so I don't know if it's good or not. And yeah, I'm going to keep adding to it throughout the year so that next year I'll have a documented account of everything I read. Pretty dorky I know, but I like it.

No not dorky at all! :) I had a similar post at a forum years ago but listing the movies (instead of books) I had watched throughout the year. I look back on it now and it's sort of mind blowing.

I found this website which you may find interesting. You type in a book you really like and it recommends similar ones..
