2010 reading list

2010 was the year that I decided to cut back a bit on my reading. Our family had a really full year - lots of traveling, busier weekly schedules, and more activities together, meant that I had to give up some of my precious reading time. However, I still read a lot of really great books! Here are a few of my favorites (to see my complete list, please join me at Goodreads.com).
Happy reading!

I am definitely going to get These Is My Words and The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. They look great! Thanks for all of your book suggestions, both on your blog and goodreads!

I just recently finished "The Hiding Place" which I'm sure you've already read but I have to put it out there just in case you haven't. Hands down, best book I've ever read.

I am just about to start reading the shack by wm paul young. Heard its good. We shall see.

Forced at times with this pregnancy to slow down. And I am tired of the tv and missing books. Looking forward to some good reads this year!
