Lots of great books on your list. I didn't manage many at all this year about 48, so I'm hoping to do better in 2010. Hope this new year is as successful as the last :)

You still did outstanding! My goal was to hit 200, but I came up a bit short too. I'll try again in 2010.

Happy New Year!!

You read some wonderful books this year, Mishel. I read more than the previous year. This year I'm not setting a number goal. I'm planning to read more from what's on my own bookshelves. I still want to accept some review copies but not nearly as many has last year. Just trying for a little more balance.
Happy New Year!

Christine said...

I read almost the same number of books as you... I came in at 79. I'm shooting for 100 in 2010 just like you, too!! =)

Happy New Year, Mishel!

(omg can I still say that?) LOL
