So quite the variety this review period, though most were still review copies. I'm hoping to get a better balance between review copies and bought/owned/library books as I read more deliberately in 2010. I'm sure review copies will still dominate at least the first half of the year though as I whittle down the pile.
I am officially giving myself permission to abandon books that I am just not into, and I will begin to list those in these FTC Disclosure posts as well as a separate list. There is only so much reading time, and I want to start spending mine reading worthwhile books. I went through my list of books read in 2009 and realized that if I hadn't been such a stickler for reading books to the bitter end last year, there are at least 20 (!) I would have abandoned after a few chapters. That's about 2 months of just so-so reading. But I do want to stress that just because a book isn't for me, doesn't mean YOU won't enjoy it, so take my future DNFs with a grain of salt.
