A year of books

As some of you know,  I a bit of a reader.  I read mostly as night after everyone else is asleep.  If I'm in a really really REALLY good book, I'll read on the weekend a bit.  I'm really surprised at how many books I can get through in a year.  My year of reading starts on my birthday.  This year I managed to read 71 books.  WOW!  For the first time, I included some of the chapter books I read to my Sugar Bear as well.  I only included the LONGer ones, though.
A list of all the books I read this past year is as follows.  The bolded ones are my favorites of the year.
