Books Read in 2007

This is basically a post to list my books read in 2007. I've moved them from the sidebar, to this post, to kind of clean things up a bit. I was hoping to leave them over in the sidebar in a drop-down menu, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. I went out and read lots of tutorials and copied some source code from blogs that did it, but I never quite figured it out. And since school starts back tomorrow, and my Christmas vacation officially ends, I will probably not have time to continue trying to figure it out. So, I decided to just put it in this post, and start a new Books Read in 2008 for the sidebar.
