2011 has been the biggest year for me in reading. I took a big leap from achieving 33 reads in 2010 and got to finish 137 books this year(!!!). My original goal was 100.. but then I graduated from high school in March and I know I won't be having any much free time in college, so I thought I'd read as much as I can during summer.
