2010 Reading Re-Cap


I am amazed that today is the last day of 2010 - this year has flown by for me.  I was able to post here almost daily, participated in a couple of Hops and read some amazing books.  I've also been participating in the Monday Morning Flash Fiction Challenge with a few blogger buddies - and I've discovered a little writer in myself.  :)

I am looking forward to an amazing New Year and wish the same for you.  If you will be out and about tonight - be safe. :)

Here is a list of all the books I read (or attempted) in 2010.  Books highlighted in RED are favorites.
