Reading Year 2010

Since I haven't commented since March 2009, a quick overview is due. I discovered a number of new-to-me authors in the last 21 months: zipped through the Tara Janzen "Steele Street" series last year; read all of Nancy Martin's "Blackbird Sisters"; discovered Coben's Myron Bolitar books; Tim Downs blew me away even though I've only read the first in his Bug Man series; discovered Craig Johnson's mountain man mysteries, very different kind of hero, looking forward to reading more the series.

Reconnected with the Harlequin Blazes in the summer of '09 and along with the HPs, I buy the Blazes every month; still buying some other categories but only by author, but recently I've been buying more fiction or romantic suspense than historical romances. Tastes change through the years, I guess.

Still going strong with PaperbackSwap, though my Shelf is on hold during the holidays. I've also been culling the book collection - so far in 2010 I've given away or donated 587 books. That's the size of the TBR for some people but it's just a drop in the bucket in my house. Kinda scary, isn't it?
