The 2010 Book List

Posted by & filed under Book Reviews.

2010 Books to ReadThis past year, I read about 14 or 15 books. Most of the reading was done in the restroom, oddly enough, although a couple books were read while sitting on the couch.

For 2010, my quantifiable New Year’s Resolution is to read ~20 books. I received a bunch of books for Xmas last week, and I have several books I picked up last year that I’ve yet to read.
