All I can say is wow. How close did you get to 200? We've read only a few of the same titles (and a few more are waiting on my shelves).

I grew up with a well-read mother and grandmother, but neither read Jane Austen (I find love for Austen's books is usually a passed down thing), and I have to admit her books didn't even register in my world until adulthood. And now I've read all of two, Persuasion being my second. Many more to discover!

Lenore Appelhans said...

I got to 160. I was aiming for 200, but had so much work the second half of the year, it just didn't happen.

I read my first 4 Austen in HS and just got back into her thanks to book club.

Lenore, you have probably read more books than anyone I know. You really inspire me!! Happy New Year to you, Daniel, and the kitties!

Sandy Nawrot said...

I'm impressed, not only with the number, but how long that post must have taken!!

Lenore Appelhans said...

Heather - My number pales in comparison to many bloggers. But it is the most I've read in a year in a LONG TIME.

Sandy - Actually, it didn't take all that long, since I copied and pasted from my sidebar. I've deleted the sidebar now to make way for 2011 reads.

Vasilly said...

It looks like you had a great reading year! I hope next year is just as great! Happy New Year!

Emy Shin said...

Oh wow. This list is amazing! I think I read 10% of what you did.

I'm curious: How long does it take you, on average, to read a book?

Anonymous said...

Wow-What a great list!!!
You inspire me to read more and Delirium was my biggest "that moved me" novel as well, I cant really explain but it haunted me for a few weeks.
