    Congrats BT for reading 41 books! I see there are some more meaty titles in your list, which will definitely slow you down, but that's a good thing. I didn't reach 50 quite either...Also, thanks for your best of recommends. I'm especially intrigued by The Sparrow.

    Congratulations - I never worry about how many - I have thoroughly enjoyed the "structure" of my recreational reading over the past 2 years. It is really great fun to share with others - I have found many, many books that I might otherwise not have read & have avoided some that I might have picked up! I just love to read...and this community group makes it even more pleasurable... see you in 2011!

    quality, not quantity;) i find this group is great for making us more mindful of reading, but isn't judgmental about how many we actually read:P:) Plus, it looks like you read (and enjoyed) some really good ones, and that's always good to celebrate!:D

    I'm so glad others are still reading the classics like Austin, Stevenson and Dickens. This makes me happy!
