2 23 books. A tie with 2009!
I I intended to do some more reading over Christmas break, but found myself too occupied with family partying, goodie-plate eating, game-playing, movie-wathcing and over all merry-making.
The Fablehaven series was a fun one to read with Ben this year. He is almost done with the 5th one right now. I like having a series to talk about with him.
Richard Peck is my new go-to author for a really quick, funny read. His books do not fail to make me laugh and have such a homey, simple feel to them somehow (like comfort food, except books).
No big stand-outs this year, but several that I enjoyed very much.
