Top books read in 2007

In January I was asked to write a list with my Top 20 of books read in 2007. Finally I came round to do it. I decided to write one in English (TOP 20, because I read more…) and another one in German (TOP 10 because I read less :)). In parallel I also wrote a list of the let-downs in English and in German…

Here they go :

Podes emprestar-me os do Phil Rickman? Presumo que os tenhas comprado via Amazon, pois não os encontro em lado nenhum.
