Books I Read In 2010

Last year my sister and I wrote down every book we read (not including our college textbooks) and graded them. We were nowhere close to our 100 book goal, but after all, we have to go to class and we want social lives. So here are the 45 books I managed to complete. I read most of these for the first time, but some were a second or third reading. I would love to know what other people thought about these books and I welcome suggestions for this year's reading list

The List

45 is quite a lot! I'm a fairly slow reader, so 100 book goals always look intimidating to me :)
