  1. I’d love an update on what you’ve been reading lately. (Sorry, I’m a bit of a “books read” list addict.)

    • Just for you, my dear!

  2. Yay! Thank you. I know you have a lot going on at the moment, but I love to see these lists.

    • Note to self: These things are much easier to keep up to date when we do it every day! I had the titles and dates, but usually not the author’s name and definitely not the number of pages. Kept meaning to get around to it…

  3. I’d love to see where you ended up for the year. I hope all is well with your new career.

  4. Hmph… It looks like my attempt to copy in part of my reading spreadsheet didn’t fare so well. I’ll give it another go some time next week. At least you can read the titles for now.

    • Whew! You did well in 2011. Thanks for posting these. I do miss your postings, but I’m hope you’re very busy writing elsewhere!
