Books Read 2011

So how was your past reading year?

I started the year with a 50 book goal, and finished with a 66 books read count!
But I got stuck in Regency Romances, reading ALL of Julia Quinn's books, a number of Lisa Kleypass's and sampling a few others writers of the genre - and that pushed up the numbers of read books substantially.

A regency romance novel would take about 2 days to finish, while a Terry Practchett will take a week plus. But both are oh so enjoyable!

I ended up reading 35 romances/ chick-lit and 31 other books this year. So happy to have read some awesomely awesome books this year - highlighted in blue below.
