Happy new year!

A couple of years ago (yes, my blog just passed its second birthday), I posted a collage of book covers representing the books I had enjoyed the most during 2001. I didn’t provide such a list for 2002, but I thought I would this year (sorry, no collage: it takes too long to load). So here’s the list for 2003:
