  1. I noticed a lot of Nora's books made your list.

  2. Nice! Maybe I should try this? We'll see what I come up with ;)

  3. LOL, I love it Christine! The only problem is now that I've read your answers, would be very difficult for me to come up with my own ^_^;

    Savor the Moment, so true :P

  4. Your meme is very cool! This is going to make me take a closer look at the titles of books I have read.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year Christine! All the very best for 2011. :D

  6. Happy New Year!

    Dru--I read an unusually large number of Nora books in 2010. 18 out of 83 books were Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb! That's nearly 22% of the books I read last year! LOL!

    Mariana--This is such a fun meme. I hope you did it. Will pop over soon to see if you posted it. :)

    nath-- I hope you try this one! It's fun! And it's perfectly fine if you use some of the same answers as I!

    Brandy--Did you do the meme, too? I'll pop over to your place soon. xo

    Lea--Happy New Year to you, too, luv. xo :)

  7. I love this meme! Your answers are wonderful... and NR is quite popular there. :)

  8. Hi Hils! :)
    I love doing this meme. Not only is it fun to reflect on the books I've read, but I like fitting the titles to the prompts. It's like a puzzle. :)

    I did indeed read a lot of NR in 2011!

  9. I really like this idea but I didn't read enough books last year to complete this which means this will also have to go on the back burner until next year. :-(

  10. orannia, thanks! This meme is fun to read, right? :)

    deanna, you should definitely keep it in mind for the end of 2011. It's a cool meme.

    Mariana, how could it be tough for you when you have like, a gazillion book titles you read in 2010?? I'll be right over... ;)

  11. That is really clever. How cool. I may have to ponder this and try not to list any dirty books. HA!

  12. Okay, I just did it!

    Here's my link.


  13. This is a cute meme. I completed it last year when I saw it on yours and Leslie's blog and also did one for this year too. Great minds think alike. :D

    I like your answers. It's a good reflection of what you read. And go NR/JD Robb!

  14. I loved this idea so much! I posted mine today and linked with your blog.

    I feel kind of humbled that I haven't read a single book on your list! I have read a few of Nora Roberts other books, but it has been a long time.

  15. Found you by working my way back from varunner's blog. I wrote mine and will post it in the next few days. This was a lot of fun! Great idea!

  16. Michelle, I love your answers! Thanks for playing.

    Tabz, I'm coming over to check out your meme. So glad you did it again this year, too! :)

    varunner, hello!! Thanks for following the meme trail to my blog and taking the time to comment! :)

    Oh don't feel humbled from the titles on my list! We probably just gravitate to different genres. I read a lot of romance, urban fantasy and young adult with some general fiction and mystery thrown in now and then. I'll be heading over to your blog for a visit shortly!

    Andrea, hi! Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment. :)

    I'll be on the lookout for your meme. It's really a fun one... but totally not my own idea. I found this meme in 2009 somewhere else. ;)
