Whew!  55 books in one year… I’m exhausted just thinking about it!  I won’t include my favorite book of the year in this post as I’m doing a “Favorites of 2010” and “2010 Wrap Up” post for New Year’s Eve tomorrow.

I think I’ll aim for 60 in 2011… and why not?  I’ve got a Kindle now, so it’s not a question of lugging books around in my handbag anymore!  🙂
