The 2010 Reading Recap & Favorite Book of the Year

At the beginning of January, I started tracking the books I read at Goodreads. Curiosity, mostly, and maybe to cut down on buying duplicates. Also because everybody else was. (Yes, if I wasn’t afraid of heights and water, I’d probably jump off a bridge if all my friends did.)

So according to this non-scientific, probably not exactly accurate tally, I read 62 books in 2010. (We’re not going to discuss how many I bought. I actually stopped keeping … Read More »
