Books I Read in 2010

Note…also published in print in Transitions magazine for February 2010.

It’s time for my annual list of books read for the year. The following list is all the books I read in 2010. I shattered my previous record and hope to extend it again this year. As busy as my life I strive to keep a well-balanced Life Wheel and make time to read. Not only do I find it enjoyable, but it is a proven fact that reading improves vocabulary, speaking ability, and intelligence. It also opens up your life to rest of the world, whether real or imagined.
