  • i have enjoyed listing the books on my sidebar this year. i will do it again next year. i will also put stars next to the books now as i remember them. i won't match them to the stars i gave them on goodreads... i want to see what i thought of them after it all. also, i'm bolding the 5 stars for all of my lazy readers. but i would also really recommend 4 and 3 stars, too.

I'm totally going to steal this idea. So smart to make it a post so you retain the record of what you read in 2009!

I love you! I love that you're such a reader and can give me a million suggestions on what I should read next. I love that you got me back into reading a lot! You're just my favorite.

Man and one of my goals next year is to read a book a month! You're a reading rockstar.

Have you ever read a book calle "A Girl named Zippy" because I think you would really like it.

Now I'll have to keep track of what I read this year. I might take some of your suggestions too!

"Fire" is by the same auther as "Graceling" and she is a graceling also. I always check out what you are reading and now I have a list. Thank you.

You inspire me to read more- now if the girls will just take naps at the same time so I can get some reading done..
I admire you.

I love the idea of keeping a list of books read, I may have to copy that idea too. Now I know someone to turn to for suggestion on what to read.
