I was so excited when I accomplished the 100 mark - but to surpass 200 was quite the accomplishment. I've always been an avid reader but 2009 was the year of the book for me. Hopefully this new year will be the same or better.

Happy Reading!

Very impressive list. I didn't document what I read this year! But one of my New Year's Resolutions...do it for 2010. Especially since I need to keep track of Challenges!

I went over to my Microsoft Works database and created a list! That makes it easier to track.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Charleydog said...

Impressive! But I cannot fathom how you could read 200 books and manage to run a house. I am ashamed of myself. I stopped working in June but have only managed to read 27 books this year. Life seems to get in the way, not to count my three cats who demand attention.
