I was asked by a couple of people to share my favorite reads from 2010. This is difficult for me to do because I read such a variety of books. Of course I enjoy some books more than others, I find comfort in knowing that I will always be able to find a book that fits my mood. (thanks, Nancy Pearl!) And with that, I give you an attempt at my Top 10 from 2010. As always, comments and questions are welcome!

One more thing! Yes, I’m attending school full-time and working part-time. Yes, I do find it is difficult to make time to read. Here’s my (unsolicited) advice – read something easy (for you) and have a reading goal (mine: a book a week).
