2010 Reading in Review

I did a rough update of what I read last year. This list is not completely accurate as I didn’t write down every book I read at my summer library job. I’m also missing the list of picture books and easy readers I read while student teaching. It felt like I didn’t read anything at all, but it appears that is a bit off (though if you take out the picture books…)
