I'm starting my list a little late this year. If you're interested, you can see my list of books read in 2010, Last year I read mostly fluff, which I enjoy tremendously. I don't know that this year will be any different. There have been years when I have set goals for reading more books (definitely not my goal this year), reading fewer books (to encourage myself in other activities) or reading more non-fiction, which is almost always something I feel I should do. Have any of you set reading goals for this year?

I didn't keep very good track of my books this year. I only updated the list every couple of months, so I had to do a lot of remembering. I take full responsibility for any duplications (though I think I managed to weed them all out :-)). There may be a few omissions, but overall, I'm pretty happy with the mix of books I got to read this year. I'm hoping to finish Daughter of Fortune by tomorrow night. Wish me luck?

Here's the list:
Books Read in 2003 (not in order) )
