Best Books of 2008 on DorothyL
From November through early February, readers of DorothyL listserv posted their favourite books read for the first time during 2008 to the DorothyL list. I copied, cleaned and pasted data from those emails into an Excel spreadsheet, then created pivot tables which produced the information included in the attached reports. Many thanks to this year's crew of volunteers who looked up missing data: L.J. Roberts, Abbey Hamilton, Debbie Bogenschutz, Debbie Rae Miller, Kelly Chandler, Lisa Weissenbuehler, Margaret Franson, Patty Andersen, and Sandra K. And many thanks to my husband, Thomas, who did all the hard computer work!
Due to the slightly private nature of some information, there are several reports on this page which are only visible to authenticated users who have joined the DorothyL group. This means that regardless of group joining, you should be able to access ALL 5 of the reports you can see in the list below (those with logins have 8 reports to choose from).
Click on the report name (below) to see that report. Click your browser BACK button to come back to this list, or click on the breadcrumbs (under photo at top, breadcrumbs begin: YOU ARE HERE). For those people who have created a login, please note that the "group" function produces unreliable breadcrumbs; if you get lost, click the DorothyL menu button at the top of the screen to refresh (i.e. ignore the unreliable YOU ARE HERE breadcrumbs which occur with the privileged reports). If these instructions don't work, please add a comment here or send an email using the form here. Again, write if this needs clarifying--I'd like to help.
Comments are welcome. :) Thanks to the posters! Rather than clutter up the site with my remarks, I've thanked the posters personally -- please know your remarks are very appreciated.
