What I Read In 2010: The Year In Review

The year 2010 was not a typical year for me, in any way. There were numerous breaks in my reading throughout the year, leading to the first year I haven’t cracked 10,000+ pages in some time. Still, I read some fantastic books, many of which I highly recommend to others.

Still, it’s a far cry from buying these books at full retail cost. I now have 124 titles in eBook format, out of 424 total titles, which means nearly 1/3rd of my books are in electronic format now. That’s a lot of shelf-space I’m saving.
