One of my New Year's resolutions for 2009 was to read 19 books (I read 18 in 2008) but as you can see, that did not happen. But it's okay, because I think what I lack in quanity I made up for in quality. One of my co-workers got me into reading memoirs (as you can see by the last 4 books I read. Well, 3 1/2 since we all know about the James Frey fiasco) And I already have some other ones lined up. Have any of you read any of these? Thoughts? Comments? Opinions? Also, what books are a must-read for 2010? I need to get my book list started!
