This year was another great reading year for me! I read 28 books!  That’s one less book than last year. I gave myself an A+ last year because that’s more than two books per month, which for me is a huge accomplishment, because as you probably know, I work full time, write, have a family, blah blah blah. Someday I’m going to be a YA author. So, I love making fun, possibly strange, and probably useless stats about all the young adult books I read. Here’s my breakdown for 2010.
