Well done! That's alot of books. Think I could do the meme based on the blogs I read? :)

Wow, that's a lot of books. I'm like George Costanza from Seinfeld: "I'm gonna read a book. From beginning to end. In that order.". Now that I don't have to read as many tech manuals hopefully I can get back to reading for fun.

That's great! I'd have to join in with Nancy and use blog titles instead of books tho. :)

You are amazing~! Reading all those books and do all that you do.. You must not watch any TV.
You spend your time well and reading is so important to the mind and our well being. Yikes~ I just thought ~ wonder how many books you have read to your children.. the number would be in the hundreds..
You are a good mom and a tiggeriffic person.

How cool. Love it! Sounds like the perfect way to flash back. May have to try it, myself! =)

Fun! Great way to review some of the many books you read last year. I'll have to remember to do this when I get back home early next week.

I read mostly magazines this past year. But so far this year I've read the Good Good Pig - excellent reading!

Hi! Thank you so much for tracking back to my blog and taking the time to comment. I love "meeting" new bloggers and see we have a lot of similar interests... reading, running, cooking and parenthood at the top of the list!

I read 83 books in 2010! We were so close! :)
I'm aiming for 100 in 2011. We'll see.... ;)

Great meme answers, by the way. I see you read a book by Lesley Kagen. I read her book Tomorrow River in 2010 and enjoyed it very much. Do you recommend Land of a Hundred Wonders?
