Books of 2010

Years of Reading

This year I read 45 books and discovered 25 new authors.

I started to fill in the blank pages on May 14, when I turned 23. Having absolutely no idea where this road could lead me, I patiently kept everything in one place. I don't have a specific goal regarding numbers, quality or quantity of books: it's better to read and gain as much joy from the process as possible, I guess.
