Wow!! What a list.

Tiffany Amber Stockton said...

Amazing! I used to read like this, but life with a new baby in the house soon approaching toddlerhood has limited my free time considerably. :)

I'm honored that 1 of my books made your list in May, though. Deceptive Promises. Hope you enjoyed it.

Have a great and successful 2010 with meeting your 300-book challenge. Happy reading!

My eyes just bulged out of my head! How did you read so many books in one year! I read 93 and that is a record for me.

Betsy St. Amant said...

That's amazing!! Like Tiff, my time is limited with a toddler running around, so most of my books I get to read now are for reviews and endorsements only. Thanks for reading my novel Return To Love in July. I am honored. =)
