Library: 11
Family: 6
Having finished two books this week, it's time to put away last year's list and begin a new one!

I read a lot of excellent books this year. The majority were borrowed from libraries or relatives; I own only seven on this list. I need to stay away from the library in 2011 and tackle some of the books waiting on my own shelf. Easier said than done because the adult paperbacks are right next to the children's section at our library where I take Allison 2-4 times each month. Such temptation!

I read 50 new books this year. My brain is tired.

The List )

Only a few kids' books this year, much less than last year. I read poetry, fiction, non-fiction, science fiction - all over the board. I received 8 books as gifts last week: the first four books in Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires series, plus three homeschooling books and one about infant and childhood development. I still have a pile of books from my most favoritest website ever (bookcloseouts.com), plus the half dozen or so my sister loaned me. And! One library book to finish.

I think I will aim for 50 again next year. Anyone with me?
