  1. Great list, Terri! I've read only a few of the ones you mentioned here. Happy 2011!

  2. Looks like you had a great reading year, Terri. I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

  3. Great picks!

    I read 95 books, not bad, considering I was in a reading slump for more than four months.

    Happy New Year to you and your family. Have a great reading year in 2011!!!

    Here are my Best Reads of 2010.

  4. Great year Terri! Such beautiful and varied titles--I'd love to browse through them on a book shelf.

    Curious, how do you decide which to review--or do you just pick the ones that "speak" to you or simply when time allows? (I'm the later these days).

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Years.

  5. The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love was one of the books I had on my list for 2010 which I never did read. I hope to get to it in 2011. Happy New Year, Terri, and it was great to look over your list of reading for the year.

  6. Impressive! and inspiring. Honestly, it makes me want to take tomorrow off and just read, read, read!
    There are so many titles here that I don't even recognize - whoo, I need to get going.
    Love the list, really - chock full of new store for me to explore! Looking forward to hearing about what you read this year!
