A look back at 2010

So we're all of 23 hours away from the end of 2010, and now as as good a time as any to admit to myself that no, I will not finish that last book*, and that last review probably won't be written by tomorrow night. So here is a look back at all of the books I have read in the past year.
This year my goal was 50 books, and I made it to 59. Next year I'm aiming for 75.
27.The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes - Gaiman
30. Intimations of Austen - Greensmith
35. This Mitchell and Webb Book
50. A Streetcar Named Desire - Williams
59. Holiday on Ice - Sedaris
60. The Shadows of the Wind - Zafon*
2010 was a really good year for me, reading wise, and I hope you found it to be the same!

*JK- I finished The Shadows of the Wind today

You read some really great books! :) I did not keep track of the books I read this year but I will be doing so in 2011. I don't have a specific goal in mind right now though.

Congrats on a great year! Good luck with your goal - 75 is definitely a lot, but you'll make it!

That's more than a book a week! Good job, and great selection of ecletic books.

Best wishes for a great 2011, reading and otherwise :)
