My 2010 Marvelous Majestic ReadORama

I am pretty sure 2010 has been my biggest reading year thus far. I read almost 200 books, which is insane. However, I think part of that can be attributed to being employed only part time in the beginning of the year.

  1. Holy freaking HELL, April! I was PT employed for allll of the year and didn’t even reach 100. This year was a HORRIBLE year for me reading wise. I spent too much time sitting around feeling sorry for myself about not having a job lol. Although Twitter had a LARGE part in sucking my time away from reading. 2011 will be my year for reading though!

  2. Woah. I can’t even imagine reading this many books in a year. I wish I wasn’t such a slow reader.

  3. Wow if only I read half as much…How did you enjoy Sugar by Bernice McFadden?? It is one of my favorite books!

  4. This is so epic. You’ve clearly read tons of great stuff this year. Seeing people get through this many books a year make me want to try and read more myself!

  5. Wow what an awesome! Interesting to see the ratio between male/female authors that you read this year – when I worked mine out I definitely read wayyy less male authors!x

  6. Totally amazing stats!

  7. wow, that’s a huge list of books! I’m impressed! 😉

  8. Jess Michaelangelo says

    Woot woot! Go April! Looks like you had an AWESOME year 🙂

  9. Well done! That’s a massive list.
