19,000 pages?!! That is impressive. I am starting "Have a Little Faith" by Mitch Albom that I was given for Christmas. I usually like his books, let's hope this one follows! Love the list.

I'm going to have to check out some of the books on your lists.... I just finished Catching Fire and Hunger games and liked them both. I love to see what other people are reading, but I have a hard time recommending books.... I just hate when I say I love something and it's read on my recomendation and then hated!
Thanks for sharing Megan....hope you had a merry Christmas!

My favorite read this year was a book called Raising Up a Family to the Lord. LOVED that book! Wow Megan, you did a lot of reading last year. Good job! I bet your brain is getting fuller with more and more knowledge! -Suzanne
