In Which Trai Shows Her Work

Since it's New Year's Eve and all, I figured I'd post the list of books I read in the past year. I keep track of the numbers for no reason at all, mostly just out of sheer curiosity. I topped the previous year's number of 37 (small number as I was busy with school and such) by 19 books; I'm happy! My goal is to get more time to read each ensuing year, so let's see what 2010 will bring! :)
