2010 Year in Review, Part 1

Happy New Year!

2010 was a year full of books. Then again, when you are a librarian - especially one working with youth - every year is a year full of books. lol

In 2010, I completed 105 books and 22 audiobooks. This does not include picture books. Goodness! If I included every single picture book I read, the list would be several times its length. Maybe I'll do that next year. I mean this year. Whenever. We shall see.
