Okay, so I did not succeed in my 50 books read this year goal but 34 books is not that bad. Especially since I virtually did not spend a cent in getting all these wonderful novels (unless you count Internet provider fees). Reading is a lifelong passion and unless I go blind in the future, I don't think I will ever stop what I love most. Even then I'll probably just listen to audio books. Anyway, here is the grand list of all the books, all the worlds and unique lives that I've lived in this year.

In chronological order:
  1. The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
  2. The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown
  3. The Last Song - Nicholas Sparks
  4. The Other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory
  5. Claiming of Sleeping Beauty - Anne Rice
  6. Bridget Jones's Diary - Helen Fielding
  7. Draco Dormiens - Cassandra Claire (Fanfiction, read for the 3rd time)
  8. Dear John - Nicholas Sparks
  9. The Reader - Bernhard Schlink

  32. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - JK Rowling (Read for the 5th time)
  33. I Am Number Four - Pittacus Lore

Let's all see together if 2011 can top off this one. As for the meantime, my first ever annual book awards is up next. My dearest wish is that the future generation will lay off the PSPs and the Farmvilles for just a while, crack open a book and discover the possibilities.
