Okay, so I'm clearly impressed. Although I noticed you only read the 1st book in the Twilight series... not a fan? I've never heard of Kathy Reichs, but I take it she must be worth looking into....

WOW!!! Amazing. my goal is to read one a month this year and I thought that 12 is so much and now I see your list, I just had to laugh at myself. I think that's awesome you read so much; what an inspiration. I hope you had beautiful holiday season and that this year will be full of blessings.
