2010 Reads

I kept good track of my reading this year! (I didn't do so well last year!) In 2008, I read 65 books, and I'm guessing I was close to that in 2009 as well. 2010 my list is at 76 books - 2 of which are in progress, but which I anticipate finishing this week! (** is a re-read. I do re-read books a lot - my comfort books! And yes, I do re-read Nora Roberts a lot... they are like old friends. :)) The count is 50 new titles, and 26 re-reads. I've read a number of really great books this year. I bolded the ones that are my favorite reads of the year! I spent a lot of time in airports this year. You can tell that from the quantity read in June, August/September, December.
