Reading With Redneck: 2010 in Review

I drafted this post last month (wow! I wrote it on 1/8/11!) and never got around to hitting publish. I'm in a reading and book focused mind-set, so I figured today would be as good a time as any. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Awesome! I am dying to read The Girl Who Chased the Moon. I've read two of her other books and she is just totally my style. Did you like it?
    I was in Barnes and Noble today (waiting for the car inspection to be done) and found two books in the bargain section that I can't wait to start. Luckily, I just finished a book last night, so I can dig right into them :-)

  2. Love it! I signed up for Goodreads, so now I'm keeping track and can do this in 2011!

  3. I'm doing this in 2011! I've read 14 so far this year. Just wish I had more free time for reading.
