Roxy Reads Again (Reading Log 2010)

Now that I've finished reading my second book of 2010, I figured it was time to start up my reading log for the third year in a row! In 2008 I ended up reading 71 books. In 2009 I finished the year out with 39 books, most of them rereads. Looking back at the lists, you can tell when life was slow and when it got busy (like when my kids' homework overtook my time to read). There was also the month last year when I discovered the beauty of Netflix online and my escape time became movies instead of books.

I'm still reading, still OCD enough to keep track of what I've read and so here goes.
(BTW, book suggestions are always welcome. I'm needing something new to sink my teeth into.)
