What I've Read in a Year
patti diva
So, last September I decided to track everything I've read just to see how much I actually read.  Here's the list, just for fun!  I've bolded the titles that I exceptionally enjoyed and/or would recommend to someone else.

(I didn't realize just how many Jodi Picoult books I read until I was typing this up.  They're pretty bad, but very addictive and generally only take me a day or two to read.)

And...why is my formatting messed up?  Screw it, I'll leave it.

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
