It’s the end of 2010 already! It seems like I just wrote this kind of post for 2009! I finished up with a grand total of 111 books read (although I’m hoping to finish up one today). According to GoodReads, that’s 37,273 pages. That sounded impressive until I saw that I read 11,000 more in 2009! What can I say? Blogging took up a lot of time, and my new job has seriously eaten into the time I can spend reading.
Anyway, here’s the part you really want to see:
My Top Ten Books of 2010!

Still, I did well with my challenges, although I mostly signed up for challenges that matched what I normally read anyway. I haven’t had much time for blogging lately, so I haven’t signed up for any challenges for next year at this point, but I hope to make time to look over everyone’s posts this weekend!
