Thazza lotta books! I checked my LibraryThing thread and I managed 70 books this year (not counting the ones that are still half-finished) and considered it quite an achievement.

Terrific reading Lenore! I'll definitely be reading some of the books from your YA list for the 2009 YA challenge.

Liviania said...

I admire that you kept track and reviewed most of them.

Darlene said...

Wow Lenore, that is one impressive list!

I used to average 100 books a year read, my mother thought I was crazy and asked 'how do you keep all those plots straight?' because I read up to 9 books at one time!

Looking for Daughters of Eve link here, Lois Duncan, oh man! That was one of my favorite books !
