Books Read in 2010

 I'm a little late with this, but I wanted to share my 2010 list.  My original goal for the year was 75 books and I am happy to have exceeded that.  I didn't read 100 YA books, but I did read 86 young adult books and 14 adult books for a grand total of 100 books.  In my opinion that isn't too bad, especially since I have a full time job and was taking graduate plus courses last spring and summer.  Here's the official list. If you are interested in reading any particular reviews, refer to this link.

  1. Thank you so much for reading (and loving) Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. I'm honored to be on your list this year. Oletta is waving hello from the kitchen! Lol

    Happy New Year to you and yours, Christina!

  2. Great job! I still have a lot of wrap up posts to write for my reading challenges. I was unemployed for much of 2010 so I had a lot more reading time than I currently do.

    You read a lot of fantastic books last year. Good luck with your reading goals this year!

  3. I need to listen to more audio books. I might see if I can find some good ones at the public library on my next visit.


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
