I can see many on that list that I would like to add to my waiting-to-be read list and maybe some of them will eventually get there, but I enjoy reading your reviews. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ANOTHER 100 IN2010!

Laurie said...

Wow, you really accomplished a lot this year Steve. What a great idea to recap the year and put links to the reviews. I'm going to be coming back to this list for a while. I'm also going to mention it on my blog. Happy New Year!

TJ said...

You realise now you've officially admitted to reading 100 in 2009 you'll have to top that in 2010... ;-)

Nik said...

Wow, indeed. That's an impressive number and list! I only managed 52 books (assorted genres/types). I agree with Laurie, this is a list I may be visiting more than once!
