  1. So after I won my copy of the Glitter book, it finally arrived on my birthday of all days a few weeks ago. I was so going to send it to you, but LOLOL you’ve already read it! I very much enjoyed the book as well! Will write my review on Goodreads soon, but wow your record so far this year is impressive! Inspires me to get the lead out and read more. Enjoying your blog my friend, keep up the good work! 🙂 x

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      I’m actually pretty surprised with how well I’m doing with reading! I was afraid I’d fall behind but I’ve been staying right on track for the 78 books. Thanks for commenting!

  2. I read before i fall because of your reaction to it and was not disappointed. I am running out of ideas so I will check out some more of the ones you rate highly 😀

    • Well I can see you are planning on checking out the Gallagher Girls Series (yeah!) I just got my hands on a copy of Scott Westerfeld’s “Midnighters” Trilogy that I want to check out next. I’ll let you know if it’s any good!

  3. Just wanted to comment generally on your 2010 goal… 78 books, woo hoo, good goal, good luck! I hope to read at least 52 (have read 17 so far), but I’m wondering if school will get the best of me.

    Anyway, I think this is a great idea for a blog. I’m used to reviewing movies, but not so much books, so I look forward to hearing what you think and what you recommend!
