    You had a fantastic year! Congratulations on a very successful 2010 and best wishes for even more in 2011!

  2. It’s always interesting to see the breakdown of books read by type. Mine is never that exciting. LOL I should consider breaking down fiction more. I wonder what that would look like . . . Maybe for this next year.

      Wendy – I was surprised – I knew I read a lot of speculative fiction, but didn’t realize it was that big of a chunk!
