  1. It's such a great feeling when you surpass your previous years' numbers, isn't it? You did so well this year! And look at all those favorites!

    I love how you list your first and last book of the year. I'll have to remember that for next year. :-)

    I hope you have a wonderful New Year, Yvonne.

  2. Yvonne - I completed 104 books too. I've joined a few challenges but I don't think i could cope with 10 even when they overlap.

  3. LOVE the cat pic! Hysterical. Great year you had and wow, what a lot of challenges. I could never keep that many straight.

    Have a wonderful new year and happy reading.

  4. Great pix of your cat stretching! I could only do about 3 challenges last year and have the same amount this year. Also was more active on the blog in 2009 than in past years. Happy new Year!

  5. You had a great year! Good luck with the challenges. I'm doing a few but the biggest is my own challenge to myself to read 60% of the books that are tbr on my shelves right now : )
