2010 Reading List

This is my 2010 reading list with links to what posts there were about them.  2010 was a very BB (Bad Blogging!) year as I moved house so posting really tailed off.  In total I read 135 books and the £1 I pay to charity for every book I read was split between BookAid International, The Livingstone Tanzania Trust and Railway Children.

Themes were borrowing from the library rather than buying everything (49 books came from there) however I did buy, or was gifted, more than I read so really must get on top of that for 2011!
