Thanks to Monica (JustJoey) for introducing me to this group. I'm excited to make more lists!

I think I will start with this year's books, i.e. 2010, just so I get the fun of figuring it out. Here we go!

Hmm... rather disappointing list. But I did focus a lot of my reading energy on the Middle East this year, so it's not too surprising. Ah, well, there is always 2011!

Hi Lisa, great to find you here. I hope you'll enjoy your European literary travels as much as I do.

Easy come, easy go... As a New Year's resolution, I decided to limit myself to the 75 Books in 2011 group. I spend enough time on LT as it is! In addition, I wanted to track my reading across the globe, not just Europe, so I have added that to my 75 Books thread. Sorry Monica! Hope to see you on 75 Books!
