The Sunday Salon: Books read in 2010

It is really a shame that I have not read much in 2010. Even more so, that I have only reviewed one out of the 6 that I have read so far. Only today I managed to clear the backlog of my 2009 reviews. A utter shame, I repeat. I need to get back into the groove of reading and reviewing.

Looking at the books, I think I have to leave romances and do serious reading!

Don't feel bad, I have the same problem keeping up with reviews :(

I just don't want to stop reading to write them...LOL

I've read 6 books this year too and only reviewed one of them. And I still have books I read in 2009 to write about as well, so you're not alone.

Reading for pleasure is very mood related. Your mood will change and you'll be reading what you want to soon. Reviews can always wait, the books are going to be selling for a long time. :) Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

I wouldn't stress over your reading. As with everything in life, our interests are sure to wax and wane as other things in our life take precedent. I'm sure you'll be back to reading and reviewing before you know it! Have a great Sunday!

You are doing better than I am regarding how much you are reading :-). Still, I know how it is easy to feel "so many books, so little time".
