2010 reads

So, I made it to 139. Just a few short of my goal of 150 and not too shabby a total if I do say so myself. I will keep a sidebar item for my reading this year but don't believe I will be participating in a formal challenge. I enjoy noting what I've read but it gets to be too much like work at some point. Once again, I have to whine about how much I want to get back to blogging. I could say that I'm just too busy, but I don't really believe that Challenge Majong on Facebook counts as "busy" and I like to lie to myself least of all. I've made some good memories and done some serious landscaping throughout the country of my skull with this list. Here's hoping this year is just as good and happy reading I wish to you all as well. I like to imagine a legion of patient fans waiting for my next post. Don't disabuse me of that notion, it's one of my dearest....
