I read 30 books this year, not quite the 100 I'd had my heart set on but I feel like I did ok. This year, I plan to read all four standard works, 3 biographies, 5 classics, two non fiction, and at least one book on running marathons. * Means highly recommended ** Means life changing.  As you can see there are some repeats from last year, including the Harry Potter series. I just can't get away from those books, they are my all time favorites. 

The cool thing about keeping a record of these books is that I enjoy to remember what was happening in my life as I read the books. Lots of things going on in 2011!
