So, I exceeded my goal and already read 12 more than in 2010. Another challenge completed :)


  1. Wow that is a pretty impressive list! I will have to keep track of how many books I read in 2012.

  2. Hi Yvonne,

    That is some total Yvonne, very impressive and some fantastic titles.

    I could never hope to read that volume of books, as I generally get less than an hour a day, where I can shut myself away with a good book.

    Do you review all of those titles, or not?

    I try to publish my thoughts about each and every book I read, which also takes a long time.

    Well Done, that's another challenge done for the year, have you already decided on any for next year, or is it a little too soon for that?


  3. Yvonne - Yes, I do review most of the books I read.

    I've already signed up for 4 challenges for next year and I'm hosting 2. I'm sure I'll be joining more before the end of the year.

  4. Wow...good for you. That's alot of reading :)
