Which brings my total read up to 47...I don't think that's too shabby...of course after reading some other people's blog (;-) You know who you are) it's rather pathetic...and I only have 1 kid. I didn't manage to even start the Outlander series, and only managed to read 1 book from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list, or the 2 from this year's NY Times bestseller list. Oh well.

I must say was an awesome year of books, just chock full of all my old friends, whom I absolutely love! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed rereading the Little House books and Anne of Green Gables books. It was seriously like sitting down with a best friend, the best-of-the-best best friend, and spending time together. It was exciting to reread these books, and know that in 4 or 5 years I can start to share them with my daughter.

I haven't decided yet what my reading goals for 2011 will be....perhaps I should read a few of the books on my shelves that I keep getting (gotta love and haven't read yet.

Wow! What an accomplishment! What a motivation you are to make me want to find time to read. I used to LOVE to read. I don't know what happened! Happy 2011! :)

Hello overachiever...geez, you're killing it in the book department. I am very impressed. I loved me some Anne of Green Gables growing up. That may have to be my next Kindle purchase. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Hope you're surviving the TWW. I know it can be torture.
