Introducing the 'Books of 2010' segment.

Last night, as I nestled all snug in my Snuggie whilst rereading "The Thorn Birds," I decided I wanted to keep a running tally of the books I've read in the course of the coming 12 months.

I'm calling it, quite whimsically, the "Books of 2010" segment.
{What can I say? My creativity level was pretty high when I came up with it.}

I've always been an avid reader, but sadly, my book reading has been relegated to a few minutes before bed to relax me from my often hectic days. I've also been playing catch up with a bunch of magazines too, which I do also love, but kind of makes my book worm feel kind of dirty.

I would like to change that, broaden my reading horizons - as soon as I finish this tragic, saucy and sordid tale of improper love that makes me swoon.

Plus, it will certainly help me keep my resolution of writing something for me daily if I'm blogging about them! That's called teamwork methinks!

What books do you plan on reading this year, and do you have any recommendations for a fellow book worm?

I'm planning on reading a few of Joan Didion's books this year. I usually read most up to 5 books of an author during a 6 month time frame but due to my work schedule, I'll narrow it down to JD this first part of the year.

She's been on my Things to Read list for eons but I never got around to getting anything by her. Thanks for the suggestion!

I mostly read YA, so I wouldn't be a good one to ask I guess, but are you on goodreads? I found that so helpful t organize what I read each year. I want to read books I have had sitting here for ...years...oops. This year my goal will be to put more of a dent in my To Be Read Pile
