Karen's 2010 Reading List

In 2010, I kept my lists in LibraryThing, but started adding the more recent books at the top of the list. I thought it might make it easier for my LT friends to see what I had most recently read (of course, they could just scroll down!) So, here's what I read in 2010:

Work in progress: I have to figure out how to copy from Word into a blog post. Is it possible? Answer: Yes, it is possible! Switch to "Edit HTML" and then paste. Works like a charm!

So, since I made my list in reverse chronological order, you'll see right below that I read 148 books in 2010. A huge increase, due in large part to LibraryThing and the so-called Take It or Leave It challenges (TIOLI)--I started broadening my reading and having even more fun.
