2010 Book Log

After relocating from my old blog to this blog, I gave myself a break and said I did not have to review every book I read. I certainly held myself to this! My goal for this year was not to reach a certain number of books read or to read off certain lists. Instead, my goal was to select books that looked interesting, savor the books I do read, and abandon the ones that don’t grab me. I abandoned quite a few books compared to years past, and certainly allowed myself to read what looked interesting (hence the plethora of Amish fiction).
