Sorry I haven't been posting much...I've been reading but haven't had much time to compose my thoughts on what I've read. Lots of interesting titles to talk about soon!
Plus, I'm preparing for the 2011 Eastern European Reading Challenge. I hope some of the Scandinavian Challenge participants decide to explore a bit of what lies East....it can't possibly be any gloomier, can it?
So, year-end list time! I know...they're everywhere. But I feel like it, so there! I'm listing my favorites of all things 2010, most of which may be especially inconsequential!

Thank you so much for including the link, Amy! I'm looking forward to your Eastern European challenge!ReplyDelete
Also... I was glad to see you liked The Ambassador enough to include it in your favorites list. I haven't put together my 2010 list yet but suspect it will be among my favorites, too, thanks to the balance of humor and angst.
