I recently received a request to supplement my Most Read Posts of 2007 compilation with something more up to date.
My original intention was to wait until the end of the year to highlight the top posts of 2008, but since this year has already been a historic roller coaster ride of sorts, I see no reason not to take a snapshot at the halfway mark.
So, without further ado, the top 25 most read posts of 2008 (through June 30th):
