111 books for the year 2011. I enjoy listening to audio books on my drive to and from work. I read when I'm on my lunch break, while watching TV at home, on long car rides with my husband and before bed. We no longer have cable TV, so that will be a big help getting me to stick my nose into a book rather than directing my full attention at the TV.
Fantastic books I would definitely recommend
Quick and easy reads - great for the beach
