My Life In Books 2010 … ‘Happy New Year’

I first came across this challenge on Kirsty’s site, then I took a look at her link to Annabel’s site and decided to have a go myself.

This is a challenge that is particularly useful, if you read a lot of books, so that you have plenty of available choices.

I don’t read very quickly, so my options are quite limited, but I am willing to give it a try.


Using only titles from books you have read this year, 2010, try to describe your life, by creatively answering these questions.

Try not to repeat a book title.

It’s a lot harder than you think!

I have included dated links to the individual book reviews, so that it can be verified that all the books were 2010 reads.

I laughed out loud when I read this back, talk about inventive! Why not give it a try?

This will be my last post of 2010, so I would like to take this opportunity to wish my fellow bloggers, wherever you may be in the world, my best wishes for every happiness in 2011.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
