Hi. You amaze me. You are definitely a bookaholic. Anyways, have you done reading Love by Toni Morrison? I have that but I couldn't understand it. I haven't finished it yet. You have a good day. Keep readin'! :)

WOW, just WOW, my goal this year is barely 40 :S. Unfortunately working in a lab does not give you a lot of free time, and the reading time is usually liked to articles! I hope you surpassed your 2010 record!!!
