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?
