Drew and Catherine gave me The Lacuna for Christmas so it's number one on the list for 2010. Now, I realize that I'm having a baby in March, so even finishing one book a month may be a stretch this coming year. A goal is just that - a goal. Maybe I can read a whole lot in January and February and then spread the rest out.

  2. yep... having a baby will reduce your reading time! But it never hurts to have a goal! Good luck with your list!
