2010 Wrap-Up

I've had a good year over here.  I've read 153 books, listened to 39 audio books and reviewed 16 movies.  I joined 24 challenges and finished 22 of them with 1 abandoned and 1 incomplete.

I read some really great books this year but my favorite was The Kid Table by Andrea Seigel.  I really can't say enough good things about it.  The best audio book was Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, read by Jeanna Lamia and David Ledoux.  It goes to show that sometimes a great reading can save an ordinary book.
