My “have read” 2010 book list

My goal is to read more this year, so here I will list the books I have read since December ’09 when I set that goal, through 2010.  It will be an assorted compilation as I like to vary my reading to include exploring children’s books.  It helps having a grandchild who loves books and having them read to him. :)  This year I also plan to read the Bible through again – which consists of 66 books in one, so I am listing each individual ‘book’ as I read it.  (Is that cheating?)

NOTE: if there are any books on my list you’d like to purchase please go to my  BUY THE BOOK! page to see if it is listed there.

    • Thanks, Elisheva. Yes, a lot of reading even though I wanted to read so much more. I have enough books on hand to keep me reading non-stop for this whole year, maybe longer. :)
      Blessings!
