80 books in 2010
I fell short of my sorta kinda goal of reading 100 books last year. For once I kept a list of what I read (so I wouldn't forget! Funny how those book titles slip from my mind after I have moved onto another one!). I read about 45 by June, so I stayed on course. Difficult to find the time with the holidays and school and birthdays and, and, and.... Overall, there weren't many outstanding reads in there either. 2009 was a much better year. My favorites were: Sunshine by McKinley, Outliers by Gladwell, Alabama Moon by Key, Mysterious Benedict Society by Stewart, Need/Captivate/Entice series by Jones, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Most troubling books that have stayed with me: Living Dead Girl; Nothing; and Orange Houses. I have tons of books on my "to read" pile and more than I can ever finish! So many books so little time!!! Here's to 2011.
