Goals for 2010:
- More variety, especially more non-fiction! :O
- Find a way to avoid getting burned out. There were some months in which I'd go crazy and read 11 books, followed by months where I'd only read two. Sigh.
- Keep up with writing thoughts/reviews! I was doing fairly well with that up until April or May, when I just... stopped. :/

Happy New Year, all! :)
